The Beauty of Fall & the Quiet of Nature

DRAGONFLY

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.

 

Montana Flora

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.

Patricia, your photos are so stunning. I'm not sure I can pick a favorite. Dragonfly's have always fascinated me, I like to watch them sitting in our driveway. Mother Nature offers us so much beauty and you are amazing about stopping to take it all in.

Endre Barath, Jr. - Dragonfly was quite active. He was flying all around and I chased him with caution, patiently waiting for a landing to get a clean and clear shot. There was a pond he kept hovering over the water, obviously I caught him during meal time!

Gita Bantwal - There's something special about the crimson color in fall that sets the tone for Autumn. It's like the torch has been passed from summer to fall.

Enjoy your day!

Amanda S. Davidson - I am determined to honor all creatures on earth and showcase them in their best light. It's so relaxing to get out in nature and simply observe. Also, being out in the garden, whether it's home or somewhere far, e.g., wilderness gives me opportunity to practice patience. 

Seek opportuntities daily!

Sheila Anderson - What you said about "insights," compensates for what I have been feeling lately - regrets about not being feature worthy on AR. I don't want to be a second chance or part of a collection of other people's stories and see the collector get consistent features. Just now, you caused me to realize gold stars are superficially fulfilling because it is so tangible. I may just have to quit ActiveRain and think about what I need to do. But then again, I would miss people like you. 

Your comment had a strong impact on me and gives me something to think about. Thank you!

Hello Patricia: I see we both share a love of dragonflies. It's that iridescent shimmering bluish-green that captivates me. They are all different colors, though. And yes, this guy's head looks like a marble.

Now that I reflect, we visited Yellowstone at the end of September / early October, and it was a great time because most of the tourists were gone.

We all need a little wilderness in our lives.  I feel sorry for the people who live in concrete towers in crowded cities, with little nature to nurture them.
