One Word Photo Challenge: Bronze

These beautiful dragonflies, living in our garden, look metallic.

I wonder sometimes whether they might be tiny drones made to look like dragonflies.  One reads about these things.

This same dragonfly, or its twin, landed right beside me on a plant stake yesterday morning while I was watering on the patio.

Tame as a companion cat, it sat peacefully as I admired it and encouraged it to eat plenty of bugs that day.  It never moved until I turned away, and then only to continue its swooping aerial dance around the garden.

  5. very beautiful! Nice close-up 🙂

    • Thank you, Michael. Wonderful news- one of the C. “Blue Hawawii” has offset a “baby.” I’m hoping to get a chance to dig around it today and see whether it can be easily divided. If I can dig the division, it will be coming your way soon. 😉 Best wishes, WG
