Down on the Farm…..

Standard

Went to visit my aunt and uncle yesterday.  It was a lot of fun visiting and I took a few pictures, of course.  

There were hundreds of dragonflies, which I am obsessed with.

My son went fishing  but unfortunately, his hook was too small and the fish outsmarted him.

Dragonflies

Standard

Dragonflies are symbols of prosperity, good luck, strength, peace, harmony, and purity.

Dragonflies have inhabited the earth for over 250 million years.  I find it fascinating how their wings work.  Their four wings work independently of each other which allows it to maneuver in mid-air.  They can hover, fly forwards, backwards, and sideways whenever they need to!  Dragonflies have incredible vision that allows them to see almost every angle except directly behind them. 

Fun fact…….. a dragonfly nymph (beginning stage of a dragonfly) breathes through its anus!
