Dragonflies

Standard

Dragonflies are symbols of prosperity, good luck, strength, peace, harmony, and purity.

Dragonflies have inhabited the earth for over 250 million years.  I find it fascinating how their wings work.  Their four wings work independently of each other which allows it to maneuver in mid-air.  They can hover, fly forwards, backwards, and sideways whenever they need to!  Dragonflies have incredible vision that allows them to see almost every angle except directly behind them. 

Fun fact…….. a dragonfly nymph (beginning stage of a dragonfly) breathes through its anus!
