At our picnic spot, nature put on quite the display, before our very eyes. It would seem that we were right in the middle of a dragonfly love fest. They were buzzing all around as singles and joined couples, playing tag and gettin’ jiggy with it. From time to time, a dragonfly would touch the water surface and we assume that she was depositing the fertilized eggs into the lake. Meanwhile the tiny fish were looking on this event as a found food source.
Love in the Afternoon
Down by the lake shore, life slows way down,
watching dragonflies going to town.
Feeling their short time slipping away,
Making haste to lay their eggs this day,
while down below, fingerlings await,
looking on this as found food, that’s great.
Over it all, the warm sunshine spreads,
Calming our minds and soothing our heads.
