Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

He Appeared to be Larger Even Than Ruby-throated Hummer~


We have lots of Dragonflies and Damselflies that visit the grove's creek area this time of year through summer ending.  The females are looking for places to lay their eggs and the males are on the prowl.  I had just crossed over one of our creek bridges when something appeared to my left and I thought at first it was a Ruby-throated Hummingbird.  Then I looked again and it was the largest male Green Darner Dragonfly, I have ever seen. It was a monster and overshadowed all of the others near by, chasing them away, for he was most certainly the dominate one at least for now~
