Thank you everyone for the nice comments. I agree the little hearts on the dragonfly are pretty amazing. When I look at it I just think that if you drew a picture with a dragonfly decorated like that, everyone would probably think you were being silly or fanciful adding 'cute' but unrealistic embellishments ... I think it is a case of truth being stranger (in a good way) than fiction. Riel

I agree with your comment Riel. I didn't know this dragonfly existed but it's nice to know it does. I'm a Valentine birthday girl and I find this really cool!!!
Hope you do post some of your own images and hope your Mom is doing well.
