The highland delta is alive with the scattered calls of the songbirds and buzzing of insects. A great blue Heron stalks the shallows unseen behind the tall reeds. I watch carefully for the flick of dragonfly wings. It’s just about the right time for them to come out and fill the air with their magic. The blackbird has a much sharper eye than I and what I failed to notice at twenty feet he noticed at twenty yards. The sharp eyed hunter springs from his perch among the reeds and closes the gap in mere seconds. He executed a ninety degree turn with grace and agility however the dragonfly is also a master of the sky. The insect can see in almost a complete circle and has the advantage of being able to maneuver between the sharp leaves and the blackbird is foiled. He perches on the reed that once held his prey and looked my direction as if it was my fault that his dinner got away. I can’t really blame him for being frustrated. After all, in spite of his sharp eyes and ability to fly he did no better to capture the dragonfly than I did today.
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days!
For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.
We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
