Fingerprint Friday..































Now here is an interesting Fingerprint. A Dragonfly.
I just happened to catch this one and he stayed very patiently for me to get his picture..Isn't he interesting? The picture isn't the best, but you can see him..
There was a blue one flying all over the place, but wouldn't stop for a picture..
Many people use Dragonflies to control the mosquito population..I notice every year there are more and more..all different colors/sizes..



A very interesting Fingerprint and one that has an important job..but then again...everything on this earth, has an important job..
Pampering Beki has Fingerprint Friday, every week..Such a great idea..try and join in. I find it makes you look at so many things with more respect..Things we take for granted..


Till next time, keep looking up...

I love dragonflies & I use it in my designs, be it jewelry, bags or as part of a mural on our walls! In Chinese, it's called "qing ting".

You are exactly right that everything on this earth has a purpose.

I find that the fingerpring friday series really opens my eyes too!

AAHHH...Fingerprint Friday! How exciting that you were able to get a picture of one being so still! Everytime I see one they are zipping around in the sky.

I always look forward to your blogs because I know they are going to be so special :-)
