Thousand Words Thursday – Friendly Dragonfly

While hanging out under the gazebo at our friends house in Louisiana, there were several dragonflies that would cavort around. Christy held out her finger and one happily landed:
Apparently their drink of choice on that particular day was Sweet Tea…

Click on the images to see a better shot – I’m always amazed by their wings. Apparently if have dragonflies in your area, that’s a good that the local source is clean – they don’t like dirty water. Now that’s my kind of insect! 😉

  12. Great! Now I'm panicking because we live near a large water source, and yet, dragonflies are suspiciously absent!!

  13. You know when a dragonfly lands on you, you will hear good news from someone far away from home. So I'm told.

  14. I was heading out the door when I read your post, but wanted to get you a comment so left it up. 🙂 The dragon fly is gorgeous. I didn't know that about the water and that makes me super happy, because my yard is full of them 🙂

  15. If that landed on me, I'd seriously have a coronary. lol. I love to watch them…touch? Um. NO! lol

  16. Wow I didn't know that about dragonflies, thanks for the tip! There are tons by the lake where we always camp! Great shots!

  17. It makes sense, if I was a dragonfly, or a dragon even, I would enjoy Sweet Tea. Hell, I could do with some Sweet Tea right now.

  18. So, I've always wondered, why do they call it "sweet" tea? Isn't it just tea?

  19. I LOVE dragonflies! They're so beautiful! As a kid I was deathly afraid of them, 'cause my family called them dining NEEDLES, so no matter what they said, I thought they would sting me.
