I had never seen a golden dragonfly before this day when I just happened to be in the right place at the right time, camera in hand.

There he sat, on a bud of clematis durandii, that somehow is growing in this new spot, and not where I planted it, with its open bell-shaped flower in the background. Oh, that purple, this gold, that light, this picture.

A moment when the colors of autumn came together on a hot august day.
A golden moment, filled with magic and sunshine.

It was a gift, that moment.

A jewel.


How precious! That is an amazing shot! 🙂

Wow that photo is so beautiful . . . it’s always amazing when everything seems to come together and magic happens.

That is absolutely beautiful, I’ve never seen one up that close

what a poem in the photo .and the words.a gift indeed

what an unusual & glorious sight! Thanks to the photography gods for guiding you to that spot!!

I am stunned! And happy! What a beauty. And what a fabulous image – this is just amazing. That clematis knew what it was doing! And dragonflies come back, you know – perhaps this is the start of something good. xoxo

Golden and somewhat magical. Beautiful capture Kelly. Have a nice weekend!

Thank you for your words! I have felt those perfect golden moments too but can never put it into words as beautiful as yours!!

stunning! beyond words, honestly. wow.


Gorgeous! I love the depth of those colours.

Yes – a definite golden gift..a shiny gem and jewel!!

This is very beautiful. Great to catch a dragonfly on camera – usually they’re not very cooperative. Love your photography.

Wow, this is an amazing shot! A shining gem for sure!

wowwee what an incredible picture, I just wait for the days when somehow it all comes together just like that it is an amazing shot.

Most beautiful photograph! I collect dragonflies and was particularly attracted to this one. I’ve never seen a gold one before either!

An amazing, beautiful photo!

be still be still my heart …
the beauty you create with your artistry …
the beauty you capture …
it all comes from the beauty within you …
