Dragonfly captured during a morning walk through Roosfontein Nature Reserve, South Africa.

"DRAGONFLY" A MYTHICAL, MAGICAL, AND MYSTERIOUS CREATURE. Symbolic of wisdom and transformation in life. It's wings are fine and light as silk. It can hover in one place and fly at extremely fast speeds, and even fly backwards. The dragonfly is said to bring dreams to reality, it is a sign that Angel's are surrounding you and bringing you love. What perfect timing than stumbling across such beauty amidst the horrors of Covid 19. It reinforces the idea of courage, strength and happiness to overcome the obstacles in life.
