Libelula by Sophibelle Libelula by Sophibelle
Waidamminute!! A... DD?!! :faint:
Thank you *Hanafae and all the others for suggesting and `impressionenmeer for featuring.
You made me so happy! SO HAPPY!! :la:

Libelula is the Romanian word for dragonfly. I know it may sound funny to you but to most of us this is a very beautiful word, exotic somehow... We like to pronounce it. :giggle:

I was always fascinated by them. They are friendly creatures. When I was a child at my grandparents' place, my cousins and I used to swim in the nearby river, and dragonflies were flying above our heads, like they were playing with us... Awe... childhood!! T_T

That's also the dutch word for dragonfly :)

But ofcourse thats now wonder as both languages derived from the same language long ago. :)

I hate dragonflies (anything that flies at me really) but this is beautiful. Truly matches up true to the Romanian name

Also no major cropping, just enough to make it a square.

It means it was featured for a day by a Gallery Moderator. It is great, because it helps the artist receive more expozure. Read more about it here: FAQ #61: What is a Daily Deviation?
