Dragonflies are among the few insects that have secured a place in folklore
and art. In Japan they are traditionally held in high regards. In other parts of
Asia they are considered benign and auspicious. While in Europe they were
perceived as threatening, even though they do not injure humans. Through the
ages they have been giving many different names such as horse stinger, snake
doctor, and devil?s darning needle.
