Dragonfly hovering over flower

I spotted this dragonfly today in a client's garden. I've been trying to find out a little more about it, and in doing so have discovered a lot more about dragonflies. They are hunters, they can be strongly territorial, some migrate, and many will actually respond to your presence.

Apparently, the dragonfly symbolizes change, and change in the perspective of self realisation. The kind of change that has it's source in mental and emotional maturity and the understanding of the deeper meaning of life.

I was struck most by how still it was as it hovered, almost motionless. Still and present. It's attention wholly on the flower. A dragonfly lesson.
