I'd never heard the term Spindles for Dragonflies until I came across this book from 1813 -
I rather like the name Spindles so I thought I'd use it for my Alphabet Wednesday post. Since my name is Scriptor Senex I guess I could really post what I liked for today!
And Dragonflies are (or have been) also known in various British dialects as - Silver-pins; Snake-arrows; Spinners; Spinning Jennies; and Stinging Adders.
