This big, beautiful dragonfly was seen in our backyard. A testament to late summer. I was lucky that he was willing to alight so close by.



A haiku by Kobayashi Issa, one of the four haiku masters.

Ready for the festival
dressed to the nines!
Red dragonfly

~ Translated from the Japanese by Scott King

Though my dragonfly is green, I think he looks festival ready.
