I made this beaded dragonfly using a pattern from a Klutz book on beading. I think I will try again sometime using different colors for the wings since I have never seen a dragon fly with red and yellow wings. Though, it is very hard to tell sometimes what colors are on dragonfly wings since they zoom past you very fast most of the time. I love the ones with the blueish, greenish, iridescent colors. When I was a child dragonflies used to scare me because they were such huge flying bugs. Since I've gotten bigger though, I tend to scare them instead. (because I am much bigger, not that I try to scare them...)
This is posted to share on the Inspiration Avenue challenge blog. The challenge is to post a favorite dragonfly image. I think I will make it a new goal of mine to try to take some photos of dragonflies, because they really are very beautiful bugs!
Some favorite images of dragonflies I found on the web:
I love these colors!
