How much do you know about Dragonflies?
Many Native American tribes consider dragonflies to be medicinal insects that had special powers. For example, the southwestern tribes associated dragonflies with transformation.
In Japan, they are symbols of rebirth, courage, strength and happiness. They are also depicted frequently in Japanese art and literature, especially haiku poetry.
In Chinese culture, dragonflies symbolize both change and instability.
In Indonesia, dragonflies are caught on poles made sticky with birdlime, then fried in oil as a delicacy.
In Europe, dragonflies have often been seen as sinister. Some English vernacular names, such as "horse-stinger", "devil's darning needle" and "ear cutter" link them with evil or injury.
Swedish folklore holds that the devil uses dragonflies to weigh people's souls.
