Bright slivers catching the sun’s rays,
dressed like a dandy,
a Long-Legged Fly is willing to
show more leg than most.

    Dapper and green, dressed for spring, come “fly” with me. What cool colors emanate from one we so often ignore, even dislike. Beauty can be found, we just need to look closer sometimes.

    Great shot Rick! One of these days, I am going to get my hands on your books.

    You know there’s a Yeats poem called “Long-legged Fly” in which a mind moves on silence like a long-legged fly on the water…

    Great! Thanks for pointing that out, Marly. I’ll look it up.
