Dragonflies of Florida

Dragonflies of Florida: People exploring nature in Florida can use this handy photographic field guide to identify common native dragonfly species. (Note: Dragonflies were not injured to make this guide.)

The Dragonflies in the guide are grouped by family and color to make identification as easy as possible, and the accompanying text indicates size and type , and other characteristics of each Dragonfly. 

Although many of the dragonflies shown in the field guide are found throughout the state of Florida, some are restricted to particular parts of the state. Their distribution within Florida is also shown in the text located under each species. 

This laminated, waterproof, folding field guide is a must for anyone who wants to identify waterfowl anywhere in North America. The 12 panels of this guide fold up into a handy pocket-size, making it sturdy enough to withstand repeated use in the field.
