I captured the beauty of a blue dragonfly in Dallas on Sunday afternoon, 10/8/2017. His head looks like a marble, don't you think? They say a dragonfly has the eyes of a predator with 30,000 lenses. A dragonfly can see in every direction simultaneously. They are focused on watching prey as it flies in their scope of vision. Even more incredible, it eats food equal to its own body weight in about a half hour. It's prey rarely, if ever escapes. Once trapped, it is eaten.
PATRICIA'S BACKYARD FLOWERS
Fall flowers that come up every fall. I planted them in my Flower Mound garden in 1998. A lady I worked with in Corporate America was going to throw them out and I rescued them from ending up in the landfill. I believe they bloom in gratitude.
I go to the mountains of Montana for solitude. Slowly I trudged up difficult trails keeping an eye out for Grizzlies. All I saw was beauty. Glacier in Autumn is just gorgeous. This is the best season to regain perspective and think about change. These photos were taken the last two weeks in September, 2017. The last photo was driving back to the airport. Part of me was ready to go home; most of me wanted to stay. You see, passion for wilderness helps give me fuel, the type I need to get through the winter before spring.
