A visitor resting for a spell on my kayak. I can remember back when I was young being so afraid of dragonflies. They were referred to as "sewing needles" and I was lead to believe they would sew my mouth shut - I would assume in an attempt to keep me quiet! I'm typically a quiet person - but have found as I age will speak my mind rather than hold my tongue. I will say what I need to say.
Happy to say I no longer believe or hold that fear. I still get startled from time to time - but this guy came with no harm intended and allowed me to take in his delicate beauty as we skimmed across the water together.
