Dragonflies in the sky

 I told you about the hundreds of dragonflies that I saw over the weekend but I didn’t realize I caught so many in other photos.

 I was about to delete these photos but decided to zoom in to see if more were visible.

 Holy Moly! My new camera (Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS10) caught so much more than I thought.

I just wish you could have seen them in action. I tried to take a movie but, of course, I didn’t read the instructions manual because I assumed (yes, I know) it was just like my older Panasonic Lumix model….. it’s not. And I love it even more!

Especially when the birds came by too. (Bring back visions of…..Auntie Em! Flying monkeys?)

 I looked up the symbolic meaning of dragonflies. It is said in some Native American beliefs that dragonflies are a symbol of renewal after a time of great hardship.

Yes. I’ve got a little Cherokee in me (spiced with freckles) so I’m sending you all renewing dragonfly wishes.
