Random photo - birthday dragonfly

"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle."

This dragonfly visited me on my birthday.

I call him a dragonfly, but truth be told, I'm not sure what he is. His head moved in a most bizarre fashion, and he seemed to be paying attention to Paul and me as we gazed at him.

I call him a him, but I'm not sure about that, either.

Whatever it was, it would fly about our heads, then land on that same branch, over and over again.

Many hours later, I went back outside. As I glanced at the branch where he had been earlier, he flew into view and landed on the clothesline just above the branch. Moments later, he was gone.

It was one of the best birthday presence I've ever received.

Apologies for the slightly larger size; 400x300 didn't do him justice.
