The dragons are still heavy in the air here. I just love having so many. They are so cool. Last weekend I was sunbathing a little on the deck and one lit on my right shoulder. I could just barely see him if I turned my head but he didn't seem to mind; he stayed there for some time. Fortunately, they cannot walk around, because that might have felt creepy but I could feel his little feet touching me. That was okay.
This one was one of the largest I've seen here. I would guess his wing span was about 5 inches. Well, that is a 4x4 that he is on and his wings were slightly wider; maybe 4 1/2". I loved the shadow he cast. I thought it was very interesting that his wings would cast such a dark shadow in contrast to their delicate transparency.
And for something else with about the same brain power..... Ernie is definite proof that ignorance is bliss. Happiest damn dawg I've ever seen.

Oh, and in case anyone was wondering; the (horrid) guy I went out with was not the one from the job that favors the Switchman. The Switchman lookalike is married. This other guy was someone I met here in my little town.

Call the bastard's wife! She deserves better! He's a dog. Was he drinking too?

What a great dog. The real hound not the old dog of a skirt chaser.

We should all be as happy as that dog looks!

Who says that we can't learn from nature?

I know there is other stuff in this post, but all I can see is Ernie.
What a face!

Hey Anon! oh, no! I said that all wrong! the guy that favors the Switchman, who I have NOT gone out with, is married turns out. The stupid guy I went out with is not married, just stupid.

Hey Philip! yeah, ol' Ernie is a pretty good dog.

Hey Jim! we should!

Hey FC! yeah, he kinda grows on you. :D

Great hound picture... he does look so pleased with things, and having a happy dog around as a friend is awesome. Big dragonfly! I love them because they cruise around munching mosquitoes.

Hey Beau! yeah, mosquitoes and deer flies!
