Sunbeams sweep across the edge of the Marsh as the meadowhawk dragonfly plays in the fading reeds. It leaps from its perch and circles a bit before hovering in front of me. I’m certain that he was just curious about who I was and why I had encroached on his hunt. However, since warm blooded mammals like myself tend to draw mosquitos in the swamp he decided to allow my presence as a lure. I continued to stumble about and snap a photo here and there of whatever caught my fancy and to my surprise the little meadowhawk was never far off. He’d occasionally fly a circle near me picking off noseeums from mid air. If there had been a hundred more just like him I’d probably have not come home itching and covered with little polka-dots. But as it is one little meadowhawk just can’t do all the work by himself. I continued to take photos and eventually decided to head to someplace with less insects that feed on humans and as I reached the big blue truck I turned to find my escort circling just a few feet away. Sometimes I a marvel at the great machine that is creation and on this day I was thankful for the ruby red guardian angel in the form of a tiny dragonfly.
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.
