"This is a most useful site that indeed helps in the identification of AZ Dragonflies. Most of the field guides fall short due to the small size and oftentimes the pictures are too dark or not sharp. Not here these are well focused and extremely useful images. Thanks" - from Robert Parks

"Your site provided me with the visual data I needed to identify the Swift Setwing (Dythemis Velox) that I had been photographing the past week in Cooper Creek, which is one of three creeks that run west to east across the city of Denton, Texas, where we live. I've taken loads of great images of this particular dragonfly, male and female (and immature males), and the mystery is solved. Had visited multipe wonderful Odonata sites here in Texas and elsewhere but despite this their sites had not helped me put one and one together until I saw the multiple images and captions your site provided for this particular species. In any case, your work is much appreciated.  Muy bien hecho!" - from Roberto R. Calderon
