Dragonflies are among the most ancient insects and were some of the first winged insects to evolve about 300 million years ago. Dragonfly is characterized by large multifaceted eyes, two pairs of strong transparent wings, and an elongated body. Around 7,000 species of true dragonflies are alive today, 5,500 identified North American species in the order and over 450 of these are found throughout the United States and Canada.
In almost every part of the world, the Dragonfly symbolizes change, transformation, adaptability, and self-realization. The change that is often referred to has its source in mental and emotional maturity and understanding the deeper meaning of life. Moving with elegance and grace across the water, dragonfly represents an act of going beyond what’s on the surface and looking into the deeper implications and aspects of life. The Dragonfly has been a symbol of happiness, new beginnings and change for many centuries. The Dragonfly means hope, change, and love. For some Native American tribes, dragonflies spiritually represent swiftness and activity. For the Navajo—the tribe whose heritage deeply influences Buffalo's work as a silversmith—dragonflies symbolize pure water. ... As such, the dragonfly ultimately represents hope and infinite possibilities.
Throughout its lifespan, a dragonfly molts about 17 times in phases lasting 7 months each. During molting, it shakes off the old and takes on the new. After every molt, the dragonfly enters a new phase of life symbolizing growth and the fact that we should aspire to be higher and better versions of ourselves. Every stage of growth comes with its changes. In the latter stages of its life, the dragonfly becomes more beautiful and colorful. Therefore, we are to take every change in life with courage, purpose, and power. The dragonfly fly only for a short time of its life and spends the longest time as a nymph which is scientifically an immature state. Despite its short flying life, it flies millions of miles during this stage. Therefore dragonfly becomes a symbol of a life lived to the fullest. It's also associated with the concept of emotional awareness: knowing who you are, where you are at a point in time and what matters of your life at this point.
