You, my poetic inspiration
Maybe even for Da Vinci's invention
Did you teach the planes to fly?
You lovely, lovely dragonfly. ~ Rani Turton

I still think this one looks like a Disney character from a plane version of "Cars" - a neat little sporty two seater! :ut3-hoverboard-blue:

i love dragonflies! they're so pretty! and i'm proud to say i saved one from drowning in a pool. his wings were stuck together from the water and so while he was sitting there drying off i gently dabbed at his wings until they separated -^_^- then he flew off...and i was like "he's ok! :D"
