About this book

Dragonfly-watching is fast becoming an enjoyable and equally exciting hobby for many of those who love butterfly-watching.

Dragonflies Through Binoculars is a new addition to Oxford's Butterflies (and Others) through Binoculars series of field guides. It allows for quick and easy identification of all the 300-plus species of dragonflies that have been found in the United States and Canada. Special features for Dragonflies Through Binoculars include detailed accounts of every species mentioned, useful information on habitats, explanations of mating rituals, full-color photographs of most of the species described, and range maps.

"Dragonflies have been around for over 250 million years, and it's about time they got the recognition they deserve [...] Now that shortcoming has been rectified for the 307 North American species in Dragonflies Through Binoculars, a compact book full of information [...] [Sidney W. Dunkle] has succeeded admirably with this volume, which is sure to delight the ever-increasing ranks of dragonfly enthusiasts [...] The range maps alone are worth the price of the book [...] Buy this book and spend a sunny summer afternoon along the shore of a stream, pond, or lake; your life will be transformed."
– Dennis R. Paulson, Science

"This long anticipated field guide has filled one of the major identification gaps for the general naturalist in North America [...] The species accounts [...] contain a wealth of previously unrecorded biological and field identification information."
