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.
