dragonfly (free adult coloring page)


A friend of mine loves dragonflies. Did you know that dragonflies shed their outer skeleton, or exuvia, several times in the transformation from nymph to adult dragonfly? Because of this, like the butterfly, the dragonfly can be considered a symbol of transformation, but unlike the butterfly, the transformation is not as simple as caterpillar to butterfly.

This is another adult coloring page that started out as a doodle just for fun, and then part-way through I decided to make it a coloring page. Unlike most of my drawings, it’s in blue ballpoint pen rather than black.
