Yesterday afternoon I sat out in the garden to finish up the book I was listening to ~ Heads in Beds: a reckless memoir of hotels, hustles, and so-called hospitality* ~ when I noticed something bright blue flitting around in the oleanders. I got the trusty Lumex, used the powerful zoom, and saw this gorgeous, delicate dragonfly dining on the nectar of the blossoms.
For even more of nature's beauties, here's a photo of a beautiful garden in my neighborhood. The owner has planted one or two of favorite everythings. The result is a riot of color and about a thousand shades of green. She/he changes these beds seasonally so there's always something growing and blooming.
