It has been a plan of mine for several years to label the many images I have collected of dragonflies and damselflies in Newfoundland. The task proved to be much harder than I imagined. I scoured government and educational websites, reviewed many images and dreamed of a straightforward site with images and names of the dragonflies without all of the technical descriptions. I finally found one: http://greglasley.com/dragonnoramerix.html Greg Lasley has created the absolute best site I could find. Other sites hosts technical descriptions, black and white sketches, endless lists of names with no pictures or endless pictures with no names. Thanks to Greg, I have been able to identify about 75% of the species documented in my photos. I have written to him in the hope that he will be able to help me identify the remainder.
It is my my hope this user-friendly page, containing images and names of dragonflies and damselflies found in Newfoundland, will be a useful resource for those with a casual curiosity about these flying creatures. Information beyond this will be easy to find once the name of the species is known.
Here goes: Dragonflies and Damselflies of Newfoundland (Some of these are listed on the government website and some are not)
Found in Goulds.
More to come....
