Mutual Fascination

Spending even just a few minutes with a dragonfly is a fascinating experience.

We share a mutual curiosity about each other.

I only wish I was half as interesting to look at as this meadowhawk.

Those compound eyes. And veined wings. That hairy body. And segmented tail. And those iridescent colors.

The band-winged grasshopper also commands my attention.

It appears curious as well, but in a much shier manifestation.

And sometimes, it just has to scratch its head.

Again, it’s the compound eyes, segmented body parts, camouflage coloration and herring-bone pattern on its hind legs that draw my focus.

As we played peek-a-boo, I wondered what there is about me that it finds fascinating.

  1. We have a fascination with dragonflies, too……although our family calls them butterstingers! My boys called them that when they were little. We look for the dragonfly hatch in June….it means there will be fewer mosquitoes……….
