Why Look at Dragonflies?
|It's a good excuse to get out and enjoy nature.|
|Dragonflies are most active on beautiful sunny days in the afternoon. My kind of critter!|
|If you're a photographer, photographing dragonflies is a rewarding challenge.|
|There are still a lot of unknowns about the biology of dragonflies, and very few professional entomologists getting paid to study them. That means amateurs can make significant contributions to this field.|
Dragonflies + Damselflies = Odonates
|Dragonflies have smaller cousins called damselflies.|
|Collectively, dragonflies and damselflies are referred to as “odonates”, after their Latin name “odonata”.|
