MACRO MONDAY ~ DRAGONFLY IN NEED OF REST


















Isn't it nice when teenagers connect with nature? We have a wildlife garden, so our son is used to critters.


Yesterday, our 15 year old  brought us a poor dragonfly damaged by all the wind along the beach at Galveston.
We put it under the umbrella and gave it a nice rest. Why there were dragonflies all over the windy sand dunes is beyond me. Maybe it's a great place for mosquito hunting.
The complete Macro Monday collection is over at Lisa's Chaos. Go visit! :-)

  8. Hi Melanie,
    I'm glad I thought to look up what you wrote about where to find your blog, because when I had clicked on your name to get to your profile, I got a message that your profile was private.

    My son is now 31, and still has that love for nature. The poor dragonfly! I hope your son keeps his tender heart for nature, too.
