Dragonflies

The dragonfly gallery comprises of images from around the world and are sorted taxonomically rather than the country were these were taken. For European species the taxonomy follows Dijkstra & Lewington Field Guide to the Dragonflies of Britain and Europe and also includes older alternative names. Norwegian species names are also included to help as a local language identification key.

Each image contains information roughly where and when this was taken

Images will be continuously added to this gallery as and when they become available.
