I had gone to bed asking for direction in my art work. Just before waking I dreamed that I was awakening.

And as I was rolling back my bedcover I saw underneath it ~ Viewed from the bottom, a dragonfly, caught under the cover and bound by a very fine spider's web.

I reached down to the slightly crumpled dragonfly ~ Hoping she was still alive and would survive. On my open hand, I watched her free herself of the webs. She became GOLDEN. Beautifully glittering and GOLD.

I took the Golden dragonfly over to my window and released her. As she flew away the sunlight cast rainbows on her wings. The most beautiful creature I have ever seen ~ A golden dragonfly, with rainbow coloured wings, morphing to be both dragonfly and butterfly.

My camera?

My first digital camera: An inexpensive Traveler DC 140: Without a zoom or macro lens and virtually no depth of field.

The only way to capture the 'Golden Dragonflies' was to BE: BE with my breath, BE with the sensation of mud squelching through my toes, BE with the stillness and gentle breezes of dawn, BE with the morning light, BE with the chill and warmth in the air, BE with the sound of rippling water and the songs of birds.

Accordingly, the images in this series are true close-ups. Slightly sharpened now in LightRoom.
