If I had to choose one insect or miniature beast that could stand as my favourite, it would be a dragonfly. There's something enchanting and mystical about them! All of the different colours and species astound me and their legacy, heralding from prehistoric eras when you could find dragonflies the size of small birds laying claim to the skies is amazing to me, so I sat down to sketch a little dragonfly all my own.
They're eyes alone are fascination enough and while my drawing probably doesn't do them justice, I can never get enough of stunning photos of these creatures' eyes.
I think this quote is very fitting for a dragonfly and what they remind me of. Whenever I catch a glimpse of a dragonfly while out and about it instantly lifts me.
Dragonflies indeed are my favourite insect and I hope they continue to fill our skies for many more years to come.
Hope you've all had a lovely start to the week so far!
