While swimming last night at the lake, they were flying over our heads above the smooth as glass lake water. Once in a while they would land on us and the smaller ones would even land on top of the water - which was not too good for a couple of them.
Approximately 3 feet away from me, a small one was on the water, and a fish came up and made him his dinner. It was such a beautiful sight to see that fish come out of the smooth water that close to me - barely a ripple as he turned back under and swam away.
I felt really bad for the little dragonfly, but the gift that I had just been given was spectacular. It did make me a bit nervous though to know that something that big was in the water next to me, and I had no clue.
Even if I had a waterproof camera to take in the water with me, that action was so fast and unexpected, I could never had captured it, even if I was prepared. This is one image that will remain in my mind's eye, with me just wishing I could share it. It was beautiful.
