    In my next life, I would like to come back as a dragonfly. I'd do it in the tropics, because I'd live longer there in this flighted, adult stage, all glassy wings and beguiling eyes.

    As a dragonfly, I'd be a success. I know it.

      Excellent focus. It looks like a mechanical toy.

      This is gorgeous, and the dragonfly does look mechanical - I can almost hear the whir of its wings.

      Why yes, Elliot; I just turn it on, really. :-)

      Dragonfly says thank you all for the compliments.

      Great shot .. dunno about being a dragonfly - male or female ? (tis a really hard life if you know what they're really up to - what with the male removing his predecessor's sperm etc and the female getting holes in her head every time a male gets hold of her .. )

      No matter how hard life was, I'd be built perfectly for it -- and I probably wouldn't be conscious, in the sense that we define it (very poorly) for ourselves as humans -- so I doubt I'd mind too much. Dragonfly it is. Male.
