The dragonfly on the bathroom door


In a recent post I mentioned seeing faces in odd places. Well, this isn't exactly a face (I'm not sure whether these creatures have them), but this is an unadorned and un-tampered-with dragonfly in the grain of our bathroom door. And I seem to be the only person who's noticed.

Foxes on the floor next time.

  1. Yep, that's definitely a dragonfly.

  2. I can certainly see it. But nobody else sees it when they're actually looking at the door? Maybe it's the angle? Most odd.

    2. They must be men. They never see anything.

  3. This one's very clearly visible! And yes, they do have faces. Quite fierce, Alien-looking ones at that.

  4. I believe it to be a version of our common blue damselfly. Frances.

  5. Can anyone else see a partial face with someone screwing their eyes closed under heavy eyebrows? Or just me?

    1. The tail is too long for a butterfly, GB. It has to be a dragonfly...doesn't it?

  8. Your evidence convinces me Frances.

  9. Actually I see a face there... A woman squinching her eyes (and nose in the middle). But yes I can see the dragofly too :)

  10. I agree about the face - up to a point - but what makes you think it's a woman?

    1. Just first impression. Perhaps at the back of my head it reminded me of some painting I've seen even if I can't pin it down.
