golden dragonfly with gossamer wings

If it weren't for its glowing golden body, I would've easily missed the dragonfly that came to light on the Diablo ninebark as I was tending to the flower garden. At first I wasn't even sure that it was a dragonfly as its wings were so translucent as to be next to invisible.

As it wrapped its arms around the flower cluster, I noticed small golden dots that helped trace the outline of its wings. I also noticed its enormous eyes shift to look up at me.

Its gossamer wings reflect and refract the sun, glint iridescence. No wonder the medicine of the dragonfly is the power of light.
