Just as more and more people enjoy watching birds and butterflies, watching the many shimmering dragonflies and damselflies - collectively called odonates, from Odonata, the name of this order of aquatic insects - has become a popular pastime. Now 'Dragonflies and Damselflies in Your Pocket' introduces us to 50 of the showiest odonates of the Upper Midwest. Ann Johnson's text is clear and informative and her photographs are stunning: it is impossible to look at them without wanting to head out for the nearest stream and search for the living insects. In addition to providing useful general information about broad-winged damsels, spreadwings, pond damsels, darners, clubtails, cruisers, emeralds, and skimmers, she includes common and scientific names, sizes, general flight seasons, and the best habitats in which to find each species: rocky rivers, wetlands, ponds, still waters, and so on. With their extremely large eyes, elongated transparent wings, long and slender abdomens, and prehensile extendible jaws, dragonflies and damselflies are efficient hunters and quick, darting fliers. Their beauty and their behavior make them delightful subjects for birdwatchers and other nature lovers. 'Dragonflies and Damselflies in Your Pocket' will greatly enhance your appreciation of these winged marvels.
