Dragonfly Copulation

Each dragonfly’s tail fits perfectly into the head of it’s own species.  Dragonflies after mating, stay interlocked, the male’s “tale” in the females head. He then accompanies her while she lays the now fertilized eggs.  Sometimes you may see them flying in this rare heart formation called the “dragonfly wheel”.

Isn’t this amazing?  They are often represented in Japanese paintings, representing new light and joy and if you see one it’s a reminder we are light and can reflect the light in powerful ways if we choose to do so.  They help you to see through your illusions and allow your own light to shine in a new vision.

In Japan, they are revered and respected, being symbolic of happiness, strength, courage and success

If you see one; joyful change is around the corner

If one lands on you; it welcomes your joy and gift of giving

If you see one dead; know the pain will pass and hope is around the corner

If you see one trapped; release it and your joy will return

If you are stung; you have been very hard on someone who relies on your love and protection, not the earning of respect. You have another chance to disperse kindness and free yourself from inner blindness

If you observe copulation; a new enterprise of prosperity is on its way, renewal after a time of great hardship

About Brenda

It was the birds and being out among them that gave her the peace she so needed and forged a new passion She uses a camera to capture those incredible moments, to savor them and share them with others. For her the camera was freedom. Brenda spent her life healing others, and dealing with incredible pain and despair. The world of birds and nature and photography was what she turned to in order to see the beautiful side of the world" Eric Curtis Cummings

  1. I remember that so well from my childhood summers on a lake: dragonflies flying around attached to each other!

    This is great Brenda, I’ve seen this and could never figure out what they were doing. The obvious was too simple.

  3. I learned something about dragon flies today! I always feel special when I see one, or should I say, they make my moment special. Thanks Drchoneydew!
