God is SO Amazing [Dragonfly]

Some days I just have a bit of the doldrums. For part of today, that has been the case. Wasn’t feeling down or depressed or upset. But I needed to see something I had never seen before. I didn’t KNOW that is what I needed. I discovered it when I saw a fellow-blogger’s post today. This is part of the Weekly Photo Challenge. The interesting coincidence is that in my tutoring I have been working with a number of my students on Biology. Each of them is studying the Animal Classification system and the theory of evolution. For those who don’t remember the Classification System in Biology it goes like this: [Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species]. Anyway, we are certainly all accustomed to the fact that butterflies are the result of caterpillars and chrysalises (not sure if that is the correct plural).

It wasn’t until today that I became aware of the etymology of the glorious dragonfly: Here is a photo I have of a dragonfly;

But oh my—the thing that amazed me today is Cheryl’s photo of her dragonfly (and how it looked before). So here I am giving you a link to see the amazing thing…Cheryl’s wonderful blog: http://cherylandrews.wordpress.com/2011/11/11/weekly-photo-challenge-wonder/#comment-622 All I can say is Bravo Cheryl!!

    Thank you for the kind comments, Kate! I’m so pleased my discovery fit the bill and showed you something you’d never seen before! That made my day too. If I ever discover the name of this particular species, I’ll let you know. They cottage is located on Otter Lake, Ontario, Canada, near Parry Sound in Lake Huron’s Georgian Bay, and this particular dragonfly is quite a common sight. It’s large enough you can hear the ‘clacking’ of their wings.

      Love dragonflies. I have never seen the “pre-dragonfly”—I am more than happy to direct foks to your very cool photo and blog! It looks like you live in such a beautiful place.
