Red Dragonfly

Saturday just gone, my niece Candace invited me to do a water aerobics class with her; it was great exercise and great fun

We say "batty mamselle" instead of dragonfly, in our day to day conversations here in Trinidad and Tobago.
This beautiful little creature is immotalized in the sphere of calypso by one of our calypso masters The Lord Kitchener. Listen to Kitchener's - calypso Batty Mamselle; Hear also Batty Mamselle played as a steel pan duo by Gary Gibson on tenor pan, Miho Takekawa on double seconds
