Nature photos start with a thought. One straps on the camera with a thought of what one wants. As one works and the eyes open, observant skills awaken. And one turns the corner with the wide-eyed wonder of discovery. The unexpected occurs, and we rejoice in it.

I was wandering at Camp Aquapaug as our sons prepared the "Feast For Folks" with their fellow scouts. It's a November event. The scouts prepare a Thanksgiving dinner for their families.

I walked by Worden Pond, turned a corner, and saw a bright red dragonfly lighting on a russet oak leaf. How? A severe storm was approaching. The National Weather Service is investigating possible Rhode Island tornados as I write. It could be that this insect came here on the winds of the storm. I don't know, but it is a wonder to see a red dragonfly in Rhode Island in November.
