Damselfly and Thatch roof house.

 Almost to the bottom of the hill is the Howe Garden. We were standing on the wooden bridge when I took these photos. She only weighed 100 pounds and was a mere ten feet long and ten feet tall. Her girth was three feet. I do believe she was too far away for folks to enjoy her very much. Please note the Japanese Iris behind the rocks. 
 Her body was carved red ceder and Wings were willow on armature, the perch was black locust. 
 Just over the bridge a little path leads you to a thatched roof house. I took these two photos as were heading away from the house and up the hill to see something that some people may have nightmares about. 
The Kitty Justice is we are just about through with the bugs.

I loved enlarging your photos and taking closer looks.
What beautiful work the artist did with the dragonfly. Amazing.
And the photos you took of the thatched roof house are gorgeous!
