A Balancing Act

Yes, this week’s theme was Togetherness. Much like the topic of Emotion, this was difficult. I didn’t intend for this to be my photo this week. I was just taking pictures while on a little urban hiking adventure and happened upon these two. First, I saw the blue. Naturally Blue buzzed away as soon as I got out my camera. Then, Red came along and appeased me. Splendidly, though, they came together.

They are magnificently different from each other, and yet for a few seconds (maybe 15 or 30 seconds), they managed to balance upon an impossibly unsteady reed. I don’t think this photo captures the typical “togetherness” I was thinking of when I was brainstorming ideas this past week.

Obviously, these are dragonflies. Insects. Definitely not the same kind of dragonfly. Probably won’t mate. Most likely will never cross paths again in their short little lives.

But for a single moment in time, there they are. Together. Incredible.
