Light and Shadow

I have a favorite place at the park that I keep returning to, and this morning I was drawn there.  To listen to the wind, smell the summer air, feel the breeze on my skin, see the beautiful blossoms on the pond (shared at the top of this page), hear the birds and bugs and frogs.  And I was rewarded with dragon flies.  

Light falling on that wing and making it shimmer with its iridescence, and shadows on this large leaf showing each delicate line in those wings. 

I’m reminded that we are all held in that divine embrace, that the universe has all these little details worked out.

    1. Tammy, there were several of them flying around, so I had to be very patient to get a shot. And then I was holding my camera, leaning out over the edge of the pond to get this.

    1. Thank you, Cathy. I took several images of this and other dragon flies. For this particular image, I leaned out over the edge of the pond and held my camera at arms length, hoping to get the focus that I wanted. It was a bit risky, but so worth it. I appreciated your comments!
