Happy-face Haiku

The Happy-face Dragonfly (Paddle-tailed Darner) is very common this time of year – often the most common dragonfly at a given location.  That's certainly the case at Cranberry Lake, where we saw a nice male looking up at us from the bushes.  He inspired the following haiku in his honor:

Perched in the bushes,
smiling up at me,
the Happy-face Dragonfly.

Mr. Happy-face, with his infectious smile.

Notice that his wings are a bit grubby, with foreign material adhering to them.  Perhaps he's thinking about doing some splash-dunks!
