Released November 2004
A sure sign that spring is drawing to a close is the appearance
of the Blue-eyed Darner. With the warming season, the Darner unfurls
its wings and emerges in all its glory. Shimmering with its iridescent
hues of blue and brown, it is easy to spot. Like other dragonflies,
it zigzags through the air—often with a mate—looking
like it is going to stop and then darting off in a blur of blue.
“Spring’s Finale” represents a brief moment in
time in which the dragonfly has stopped from its regular activity
to rest on a cattail in a swamp. It also represents the crescendo
of beauty that is the end of spring. Colours vivid with life have
lived on rain and are now rejoicing in the ever-warming sun. “Spring’s
Finale” is but a moment in time that encourages you to reflect
on the past and prepare for the future.
