a dragonfly’s wings

~

have you ever looked upon a dragonfly’s wings

and

wondered to yourself ~

why?

~

why

with all of the many colors in the world,

are their wings transparent

to the human eye?

~

can it be nature’s gift to protect –

camouflage that which we see

or

maybe what we see is not to be questioned ~

it is exactly

HOW

it should be?

~

~

while pondering how, what and why

a hypothesis came to mind ~

wings such as these

must serve another purpose

than

simply a way in which to fly ~

~

i believe their transparency is magical

and

not just for the sake of  blending in

but

to MAGNIFY

the ordinary

and

all of the beauty which is surrounding them!

Weekly Photo Challenge – Summer Lovin’

Baseball at sunset on a hot summer night….

I have been taking a photo of Peyton sitting on the bench practically every year of his baseball career, which began with T-ball when he was 5 years old.  The picture above was taken in the summer of 2013.  Sadly, this year, he did not play – he has retired. 

It’s all good…

Soccer is getting ready to kick into gear……

interruption

quietly staring

waiting for lunch to swim by

Pshaw – GOTTA GO!

in flight

interrupted by a certain someone and her mommy – unintentional, of course…

a prairie wedding

patient brides stand poised

as they face the setting sun

awaiting their prince…….

icky sticky

°

sticky like honey

sticky like jam

bugs flying in a frenzy –

while swatting skeeters with my hand

°

clothes sticking to my skin

sweat trickling down my brow

it’s a hot humid day here –

i need air conditioning NOW!
