Dragonflies

Dragonflies spotted around the area of Reelfoot Lake, Lake County, Tennessee.

The dragon-fly is dancing,—
      Is on the water glancing,
      She flits about with nimble wing,
      The flickering, fluttering, restless thing.
Besotted chafers all admire
      Her light-blue, gauze-like, neat attire;
      They laud her blue complexion,
      And think her shape perfection…
~Heinrich Heine, “Die Libelle” (The Dragonfly)
