One day with the Dragonflies

in BDCommunitylast year

I usually wake up a little late when traveling to a place. Because, in your daily life, even if you don't want, you have to go to office and need to wake up early in the morning. Although the habit of waking up in the morning is quite good and beneficial for good health but in the culture of the city one used to go to bed a little late. From that point of view, the people of the village go to sleep early and maintain a good habit. It’s a deep night for the villagers when we just start the night here. After working hard all day, they can't stay up too late even if they want to.

However, despite being on vacation, I woke up quite early that morning. I went to bed at night thinking that I would see dragonflies in the morning. Although dragonflies can be seen all day long, in this intense heat, I wanted to avoid the midday sun. The cool weather in the morning is really nice to enjoy the beautiful nature. Even in the hot summer you will feel coolness of natural with the gentle breeze.

Where I went for a walk was a good place for dragonflies and butterflies. It was a huge area almost entirely covered with greenery. There were several beautiful flowering saplings. Butterflies were swarming around to collect honey. And the dragonflies were running in a restless manner on the branches and leaves of various small trees. This was a beautiful scene.

I was watching the dragonflies and thinking about my childhood. As a kid, I used to run after dragonflies all day to catch them. Sometimes I would catch these dragonflies by hand and sometimes I would put the glue from a special tree on the head of the stick and use it to catch dragonflies. Although I only saw the dragonflies rather catching those that day and took some pictures.

Dragonflies tend to be very agile in nature. Even if you really want to, it's a little difficult to take pictures of them. So I was following them for quite some time. I was trying to take pictures whenever the dragonflies were settling down. There have been many times when I was just getting ready to take pictures then the dragonflies flew away. Although it took a lot of time and a lot of hard work, I enjoyed the whole process. Hope you have enjoyed the pictures.

Thanks for reading.
Stay safe and healthy.

I never did that,heard for the first time. I used to use plastic lid with very small hole ones to catch them.
