So, tell me about these dragonflies…
Dragonflies are among some of the most intriguing insects on the planet. Flying rapidly, and hovering effortlessly over various bodies of water, adult dragonflies actually only live for about several months at the most.
Dragonflies, like butterflies, and other members of their family, Odonata, live most of their lives as nymphs, or young, wingless insects. As they mature into beautifully colored, flying adults, they feed on smaller insects, and are extremely adept and efficient in flight. Although the largest wingspans of some dragonflies in Central America have only been measured to be approximately seven and a half inches; in prehistoric times, their wing fossils have measured up to an astonishing twenty-nine and a half inches!
But what’s with the dragonflies? What makes them so special–so significant?
In numerous dragonfly folklore, dragonflies signify change, maturity, and adaptability. This unique insect’s four wings move in such synchrony that the dragonfly can fly in six different directions: hovering–like a helicopter, straight upwards, backwards, both directions sideways, and downward. This amazing ability is a must for being able to feed; protect themselves from predators; guard their habitat; and have the agility to adapt to sudden changes and situations. Ironically, all of these qualities are also imperative to running and maintaining any successful business or endeavor. A website, like the effervescent dragonfly, must have the same versatility and “flight” adaptability. It should excel in performance and in functionality, and be responsive to the needs of both clients and their customers.
So how does this apply to me and my business needs?
