“With six small diamonds for his eyes
He walks upon the summer skies,
Drawing from his silken blouse
The lacework of his dwelling house.”
~ Robert P. Tristram Coffin
I spotted several of these moths fluttering among the partridge peas on our country road. They were such small, light colored moths that I wasn’t sure they would photograph well, but was pleasantly surprised at the detail the camera was able to pick up.
“The beauty of life is in small details, not in big events.” ~Jim Jarmusch
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)
