Dragonflies are so incredibly beautiful, down to the very smallest detail. I love that intricate pattern and then that small green rectangle on the edges. These wonderful photographs were taken by Fanny of Les contours du silence, a blog brimming with beauty.

Such delicate lines on such hardy wings. We've seen so few this year with all the cooler weather.

the intricacies of this reminds me of the veins in fall leaves, as the material starts to fall away.

@ Carole: it's been ages since I saw a dragonfly myself. I wonder what's happened to them, there seemed to be so many when I was young.

@ Sam: what a beautiful comparison. You're absolutely right!
