An Imago moment.

Last year I was staying with an elderly friend, she has lost her sight so I was helping her with a crossword.
The word imago came up and I'd no idea what the word meant but she did.

An imago is the last stage in the life of an insect.

It is surprising how many people who like me didn't know the meaning of the word.

So yesterday when Mr P told me he had something to show me, there it was the imago of a dragonfly.
Luckily we were able to take a couple of photos of it as it let the sunshine warm its body and wings
Today all that is left is the empty case of its former nymph body - the transformation is a beautiful one.


  1. The dragon fly is so magical.. I love to see them flying near the river their wings so iridescent and huge, your bag is gorgeous too..
