  •  Wow! (6+ / 0-)

    So this is what retirement is all about! You are my inspiration, burnt.

    So. How do you get the dragonflies to perch on your
    finger? They are so very shy here, or too danged full of themselves. Never come more than 6 feet away.

    Monday down at the Wetland found a new one, a female,
    all sparkly copper wings and a beige and brown body with green and dark striped thorax and green eyes. She was laying eggs, returning again and again to a log half rotted and almost submerged in the wetland pond. It was too dark to get a photo.

    I'll get there, someday.
