N is for Nymph

In greek mythology, Nymphs were female nature divinities, who inhabited the seas, the rivers, the meadows, and the woods and trees. They were responsible for making nature beautiful and were also capable of metamorphosis, meaning they could take more than one form.


Maybe even into this:


This is a dragonfly. It is also a nymph.

In biology, nymphs are the immature forms of insects that will go through a gradual metamorphosis until it reaches its' mature (adult) stage. Nymphs of aquatic insects, like the dragonfly, are called naiads, which in mythology are water nymphs.
