The Dragonfly symbolizes change, transformation, adaptability, and self-realization. A visit from a dragonfly represents good luck or prosperity. So make a wish when you see a dragonfly and it’ll come true! Dragonflies can hover in one place, are some of the fastest flying insects in the world and are some of the most colourful insects on the planet! The iridescent wings and body of this regular visitor on the cottage steps, glisten magically in the summer sunshine.
