Happy Monday everyone! I want to start off by apologizing for my lack of recent posts. April truly was a month of change, and during these past few weeks I've started a new job, worked on several projects, and have just been trying to get my life a little more in order for the upcoming summer! But now as things are finally settling down, I can refocus on personal hobbies including my art and this lovely blog! Thank you all so much for being patient with me!
To begin this May, I wanted to add an addition to my bug collection! While bringing in groceries on an overcast Tuesday, I found this guy perched, ever so gently, clinging to the staircase railing. Without moving a leg or fluttering a wing, he sat so calmly just enjoying the mid-afternoon. I couldn't pass up such a perfect moment, so of course I ran upstairs and grabbed my camera before he flew away.
I found such a beauty in the ornate details of his body. I'd never really been able to see a dragonfly up close, as they usually are buzzing so quickly by, but as this one rested peacefully, I could now notice how beautifully patterned they are! Even the symmetrical wings that glistened in just the right light with a prism of colors, are so breathtaking in their uneven web of lines. He reminded me that even the smallest things can have unique splendor to them. I finally took the time to stop and really see the dragonfly!
