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.
