Damselflies of Texas

When I get John's book, I'll be able to tell you what kind of damselfly this is.

Any damselfly lovers out there? If you’re not sure what a damselfly is, it’s the dainty cousin of the dragonfly. Anyone who’s sat next to a Texas river or lake has likely been visited by one of these colorful beauties.

Now there’s a field guide for Texas damselflies from the University of Texas Press.  Called Damselflies of Texas, it is the latest offering from John Abbott, entomology curator at the Texas Natural Science Center, Brackenridge Field Laboratory Insect Collection.  John’s one of our premier insect photographers in the state, and also an expert on the dragonflies of Texas.
