damselfly

The damselfly – the dragonfly’s cousin – with its bright splashes of color seems as unlikely as the dragonfly itself.  Both names conjure images of a bygone era.  A time when life was far different from our present day.  When many had no leisure time.  When life was a daily struggle.  Others now face similar struggles, but I thankfully do not.  I am able to enjoy life and capture it with my camera.  To appreciate the here and now.  To remember with thanks the struggles others endured so I can now be.
