A Welcome Visitor

The day of the frog swim you might recall that I saw a beautiful blue dragonfly there too. Unfortunately, I couldn't get it on film :(
But the great thing is that with 2 ponds--lots of trees and other plants--and good weather, we get a lot of dragonfly sightings. So a few days passed and I was at the pond again; when all of a sudden one landed really, really close by me. Just a few feet away actually.
Totally unexpected, totally a surprise and totally a blessing!
But the question is---can you see him/her?
Look really hard now.
Actually since probably all of you have younger eyes then mine, I am sure you will see him right away. But for me and my 'antique' eyes here is another view.
Now isn't that neat?
Maybe someday I'll get a photo of that hawk which keeps doing 'flybys' over our home...
one can always hope.

"Dear mother earth, who day by day
Unfoldest blessings on our way,
O praise Him! Alleluia!…
Let all things their Creator bless,
And worship Him in humbleness,
O praise Him! Alleluia!"

Lyrics:
All Creatures of Our God and King,
St Francis of Assisi, about 1225

It is a good one, I agree! I never realized that St. Francis was the hymn's author until recently though--silly me:)
