Photographer's Note

Hello friends in TE.

I was playing on the edge of a field like this when I was much younger, happy to be in the sunshine and out of the house. When a large dragon fly landed on a flower, I tried to get closer. Startled, the insect darted towards the field's deepest part. I rushed after it so quickly that I didn't see the log lying just ahead. I smacked into it with a thud, launching my body into the air and tumbling myself into the grass. I and a dandelion had just nodded hello to each other when I heard a tiny voice.

"Clumsy, that's all, just plain clumsy!"

It was coming from the other side of the log. I rose slowly to my knees and peeked over the top. At first I didn't see anything. When I heard the faint flutter of wings I looked a little closer. What looked like a miniature girl, about six inches high, was standing on a rock. She was adjusting her tan leather outfit and shaking the most delicate wings I had ever seen. They were even tinier than the wings of the dragon fly I had been chasing.
