Dragonfly Lore Rotating Header Image


I have always loved dragonflies. I remember watching them as a child. We had no pond, but there must have been one in the pasture behind our house, because there were often lots of big, beautiful dragonflies in our backyard.

Later, I became interested in the beautiful lower of dragonflies and the amazing amount of dragonfly art. I am not a biologist, but I do like learning about the huge number of dragonfly species around the world.

    Thank you very much for your thoughts and info shared on dragonflies. I especially connected with what you wrote about people with dragonfly totems. I think it may be one of my animal totems or guides.

    Years ago I saved a dragonfly struggling in a kiddie pool. He latched to my finger and stayed there for over an hour, even rode in the car with me into town. And as I waited for my dad to return to the car I marveled this creature. He then flew off. Since then I have always loved them. I was curious though to know if there is any kind of omen relating to the rescue of the dragonfly.

      What a wonderful experience. I don’t know if it is an omen in general, though perhaps it is for you. The Zuni people of the American Southwest consider dragonfly to be a messenger to/from the spirit world. Saving one surely ought to be good luck, or good karma. Whatever it is, it seems good, a blessing for you and for the dragonfly.
