Nature Notes: Nosy Neighbor

Peeking In

Sometimes you go looking for nature and sometimes it comes looking for you.

I was just sitting here considering what to post about for Nature Notes, when this little dragonfly floated up and peered in through the window. I had no time to change the camera settings, so it's in black and white. But then, so was the dragonfly, so nothing lost. Doesn't she look like she's shading her eyes for a better look?

We did lose power with the storm Wednesday, which means no pump to bring water from the well. No AC or lights, either, but the water is the real issue. I washed in the sink yesterday morning, using water I scooped out of the swimming pool in a bucket. We flushed toilets the same way, using pool water. I really hate the way that above ground pool looks, but I'm suddenly not so inclined to take it down.

I just don't know how you guys do it. That is so neat to see and yes, it looks like she's shielding her eyes. It's a good thing to have that pool, eh? Hope your water is back and life is normal again.
