After the rain

I feel like that big rain yesterday brought something really good. Suddenly everything seems greener and I'm seeing more growth in the garden, even in just one day ... and there were so many more little fish swimming in the water.

I also saw a very excited heron making its way around the lake, as well as a limpkin, no doubt looking for apple snails. Meanwhile, zebra longwings fluttered all around the garden, and dragonflies were abundant by day's end.

The photo above depicts one of two dragonflies I spotted at the end of the day. I am still thinking about those wings.

And here's another dragonfly  that was hanging around the garden.
