Enter the Dragon

Darter by Scott Guiver

Yeah I know, the title’s not very original but it’s all I could think of.

This year I’ve made the effort to try and identify more of the creatures that own four wings. I believe this beauty is a Common Darter, but please do correct me if I’m wrong.

The picture below isn’t aesthetically one of the best shots I’ve taken of a creature with four wings this year, but hey, who cares – it’s definitely a Norfolk Hawker!

I have now been active on my blog for about a month. Yesterday I had the highest number of views in one day (119 – thank you viewers!). But on closer analysis of the stats , I noticed something :

The post with the highest number of views was The Dragonfly Blues , my  27 th post , it had 27 views. hhmmm interesting!

What’s in a number?

Some maths:

27 is the only positive integer  that is 3x the sum of its digits. (2+7 x 3=27)

–  27 cubed is 19,683.   1+9+6+8+3= 27.

–  27 is the sum of the integers from 2 to 7. (2+3+4+5+6+7=27).

–  27 straight lines on a smooth cubic surface make the perfect cube ,(Cayley-Salmon theorem) – I’ll take their word for it!

Some trivia:

– The human hand is made up of 27 bones.

–  Florida is the 27 th state of the USA.

–  In ancient Inca culture there were 27 roads to El Dorado.

🙂     Happy Friday WorLdpress.
