This dragonfly kept following me on my walk. I tried to take a pic a few times but it moved so fast. I gave up & kept walking around the block, but it kept popping up so I asked, “Would you let me take a pic? I promise I’m not going to harm you”, and it suddenly stayed in place. I snapped a few, thanked it, and we went our separate ways. Then, I looked it up.

Just like the dragonfly changes colors as it matures, you may be called to live & experience yourself differently. Stay open to the enfoldment of your personal #journey.

#DragonFlies have the largest #compound eyes of any #insect, with up to 30,000 #lenses per eye, wrapping around & covering most of their head, which means they can see all directions at once with #binocular vision. Each lens points to a slightly different direction, perceiving different
wavelengths of light creating a #mosaic of images beyond human visual capabilities. They can see #ultravioletlight & can detect the plane of #polarization of light, which humans cannot do without the aid of #sunglasses. Dragonflies are amazingly powerful & graceful #navigators, flying up to 45mph. It can change direction & is the only insect that can fly backwards. This gives dragonfly the symbolic value of a spiritual #guise particularly through tricky winds. All in all, dragon flies are #badass!
