About this book

Dazzling in appearance, idiosyncratic in behaviour, dragonflies and damselflies have long captured the imaginations of nature lovers. In this illustrated natural history guide, Cynthia Berger takes a whirlwind trip through the lives of these intriguing insects, from their birth underwater (where they actually spend most of their lives as ferocious nymphs) to their miraculous transformation into free flying adults. It features a field guide to the most common North American species, including life size silhouettes for easy identification, as well as tips for observing dragonflies in the wild and attracting them to your garden.
