Lighting to inspire.
I absolutely love the lighting in this photo. And from an artist’s perspective it makes me inspired for a project that would emphasize light such as stained glass or a sun catcher. Another lovely project would be something for the garden as decor.
This dragonfly was basking in the sun on our deck last week. We had the chanced to observe him for a while. He was happy perching there and wasn’t gonna move anytime soon, regardless of us being there.
Organic or machine?
The way he moved was very robotic. He seemed more like a space creature close up than an animal. Or perhaps like that of a machine. Even the sounds the dragonfly made were more mechanical than biological.
I think this dragonfly was most likely a Great Blue Skimmer, even though not blue in the body, because the color can vary and it was the eyes and wings that sold me on the idea. If you can clarify that for me feel free to comment.
