Artist's Description

“Resistance” because it associates a very human trait to the image which is that of resisting the plunge. I feel this way myself at times; standing on the edge of the next stage in life as if I were about to launch myself into a furiously raging river. It is not the longing desire for new experience and growth which is most prevalent at these times but that stinging moment of resistance during which one must decide to hang on let go.
The white blur on the wings of this blue dragonfly results from the strong tailwind pushing it to let go. I was torn between two titles for this image; “Launch”, due to the dragonfly’s perched position and resistance to the current of air literally forcing it forward, or the word “Resistance” itself.

This critter is a blue dragonfly, Common Pondhawk or Libellula of some type. There’s such a variesty of dragonflies it’s hard for me to ID them. If someone knows exactly what dragonfly this is, I would appreciate your letting me know.
