The Jewels of Nature

This Dragonfly looks like a jewel

Isn't nature beautiful?  

I nicked copied this photo which was taken on her phone by a great-niece of mine who is also a Marine Biologist with her Master's behind her already and a Doctorate too I believe now! Congratulations on meeting all your challenges Aimee and thanks for posting this photo so I can steal use it for here!
What is a Challenge?

We are half way through the month at our challenge blog and have only a few entries thus far.  Hopefully, there will be a few more entries soon. We are offering a challenge I know - but the knowledge that you have taken on the challenge and crashed through is so satisfying! We use the word itself as both a noun and a verb, according to Professor Google!

We summon you to take the theme and dare to soar into the heady heights of imagination and creativity, and produce a piece of work that can be clearly seen following the theme. In addition, we ask you to engage in the twist - to take your work one step further into the contest! The rewards are few - a prize chosen at random, selection as the DT Favourite but you get the satisfaction of knowing you have tried and succeeded - priceless in itself!
