Besides the bee's surrounding the Water Hyacianth, there is another admirer to the pond. It is a beautiful copper colored dragon fly. He seems to prefer to visit during the hottest part of the mid-day. He hovers over the pond, then lands on the Plumeria on the island in the middle of the pond and gazes over the pond. Sometimes he will disappear into the distance for a few minutes, but always returns to gaze upon his territory. We have named him Rumplestillskin. Recently he has been bringing a friend. She is very iridescent, so deserves her name as Tinker Bell.

They are a beautiful addition to our landscape in progress!
