Dragonfly Wing

Dragonfly Wing

Last week after a rainy afternoon a dragonfly settled in my garden. I was already out photographing, so I was able to make the most of its cooperation.

Up close, lit from behind by the setting sun—the photo shows a magnification of about ten times life size—this dragonfly’s wing reminds me of an architectural construction, perhaps the stained glass in a cathedral. How wonderful it is to see such a miracle in a living creature wrought so small!
