Last week I came upon a group of dragonflies in an open space in the forest. They were amazing to watch as they flitted and dove among the vine maple branches.
This one particular dragonfly captured my attention. The way she was positioned, and the way her crystalline wings caught the light, I thought she looked a bit fairy-like.
I find the natural world to be quite mysterious. I suspect there are realms of reality beyond what we see with our human eyes. Each time I wander, my hope is to see what’s behind the veil.
I suspect I had a glimpse of something extraordinary on this day, perhaps something a bit magical. I'll never know for sure, but what a wonderful reminder that things are not always as they seem.
With all that’s happening in our world, I welcome a little magic…
