Here are a few rubilicious shots from the past few days.

A barn peeks through the rain-soaked woods along a country road:

A farm shed in Cheshire:

Dahlias on the Bridge of Flowers:

Dragonfly wings:

A rainbow in the last light of the day wreaths our barn:

And lastly, sunset in the opposite direction:

Sorry for the hodge-podge of images, but they were all varying degrees of ruby, so I threw them in the pot.  😉

For more Ruby images, visit Mary over at Work of the Poet!

All very beautiful shots and I couldn’t have chosen a particular favorite either.

Of course, I love the barn. But the dragon fly on the pink flower (dahlia?) really sweeps me. You do honor to the creature by making that image, and thank you. Random is good. Rubilicious is better. You covered all the bases.

I think the dragonfly image is the most extraordinary. Many of the others do have great light and expansive color, whatever–the detail on the dragonfly’s wings is like a revelation–seeing a dragonfly from a different angle and in a new way that includes a greater complexity. It’s an unstained glass-view of the flower underneath. The dragonfly wing becomes a kind of accidental frame. In detail, the dragonfly almost seems mythical–or like a copper clockwork of an insect–simple in design and elegant. The effect is entirely perfect. Weird that a little image can express so much.

Susan, Miz Lu, thanks. 🙂

Vixen S., welcome! Your observation that the wings form “unstained-glass” frames for the flower beneath was indeed my first impression of this photograph – the actual full-size version has a great deal of detail, and I’ve spent quite a while scrolling through the image enjoying that effect!

What a great series of pics!

You live in a lovely place. 🙂

seeing your pictures makes me feel good about this country for five minutes — with so much garbage going on – sometimes you need to sit back and look at the beauty of this place

Vikki, yes, as do you! There’s a lot of “balm” out there, and as distributorcap says, it’s needed in these times.

DC, thanks – I had to give myself some distance from the craziness of politics and society; bad for my “preshah,” ya know. But I read and appreciate your observations on a regular basis. As I’m honored to share a little of the beauty of the world with those of you who come here, I’m also grateful to those of you who bear arms in defense of what I believe is right and just.

It’s symbiosis, don’tcha think?
