These critters are just a few that make flying look easy. Zipping through the air effortlessly, soaring high then diving quickly in to land on their target, I often find myself spellbound. The other afternoon, right before the sun disappeared in the West, I couldn't believe how many bugs the dragonflies snapped out of the air! They zipped to and fro, up and down and seemed to vanish with sunshine. I tried to get photos but the dragonflies were too far out of range.
Now these two were practically on top of me when I went to weed on the South side of the house. Hungry for their sugar water, they were within reach and didn't care that I was in there among the wispy,white Gaura and tall, purple Liatris, which has spread so much this year.
just seeing, saying, and sharing...
The Power of Flight
