What a great site, full of information and excellent photographs.
I came across the site when I was trying to identify some Dragonflies I'd snapped and it is by far the best site for identification that I've found.
Keep up the good work,
John from Fairhead, Co. Antrim. Just to say thanks for the ID on Wheatears last night on I-Spot. A friend had sent me the photo earlier in the evening and I didn't have a clue. You have created a lovely site here - a thing of beauty.
A nicely laid out site that has helped me identify the dragonflies/demimosels I've photographed. The detailed supporting text is ideal for confirming a visual match is reasonable.
There's also a arge collection of top photographs available to help show me how much further I need to improve!
Thanks for all the work Chris!
I was wondering if you could help me ID a lovely Dragonfly from a photo I took today. I am having trouble using the email wizard, so if you could email me first, I can send you the photo. Thank you...Marta
Stumbled across this magnificient site. Well done Chris for the hours you have spent on recording all these wonderful photos. A huge thank you for taking the additional time and effort to share with us all your knowledge and helping us to clearly understand this whole new of the dragonfly.
I love your stunning photographs, trying to follow you on Twitter to keep up to date with your work but can't seem to find you!
Once again I am completely in awe of your amazing images. what skill, perseverance and patience. you clearly have a passion for these beautiful insects, and I do thank you for sharing these revelatory images. It is inspiring.
Came across your site on iSpot. Very impressed with your macro pics.
Great website. Can't believe we have found a female golden ringed dragonfly on block paving in our garden in the mddle of Grimsby. Fantastic!
I came across your website via a well know search engine and I am so glad I did! Your beautiful and detailed photographs coupled with the clear, succinct text and quick ID feature makes it my top Dragonfly website! Highly Recommended!
Great site, including the photography tips.New to Dragonflies this year , looking forward to lots more next year, keep up the great work .
A good site, helpful in confirming the ID of the various visitors to my garden ponds.
The images are really useful in that respect, as well as the succinct text.
Best wishes, Peter
Just found your website + I love it....great photos, useful tips and LOTS of enthusiasm....I'm just back from summer in Poland with scores of good quality photos, some of which I can't I.D.? my reference book is at my old home? I was wondering if you'd possibly help/ I'm sure they'd be pretty simple to you as they're really good clear photos.I tried to e-mail you but the link on your website won't open up on this ( friends) computer? could you please send me your e-mail address so I can send 1-2 to you? I stress there are only a few !!!
Keep up the great snapping + look forward to your reply.

Im New to Dragonfly photography and i have just come across your website and think its brilliant the way you have set it all out with superb descriptions and photos, I have book marked the site as i know i will return often for ID Pointers, its better than a book i recently purchaced.
Once again Thanks
Brilliant website, found it useful in identifying my recent dragonfly and damselfly sightings which I recorded on my website. Will place a link to your site on mine and no doubt will be back again as I am a novice in these subjects.
What a wonderful site! Great photos and clear quality information.
Thanks to clarity and ease of navigation, and of course your beautiful photos, I have ID'd my garden visitor as a female Migrant Hawker.
As a novice photographer and naturalist, I will be visiting often in the future.
Thank you very much.
Positively impressed by your website. Let's exchange links:

Our chance encounter yesterday at Warren Heath Ponds signalled a turning point in my newly found interest in this fascinating subject. My efforts to capture a shot of the resting Emperor, the first I've had in my viewfinder, convinced me that priority has to be a new dedicated macro lens to replace my slow and noisy Sigma APO zoom. I guess you probably will not use your shots because of the distracting cluttered background but I would be interested to see one for the sake of comparison.
Congratulations on a brilliant web site; a must in anybody's arsenal of informed and illustrative odonata references.
To-day I was watching and taking photos of, what I now know, thanks to you, are Broad Bodied Chasers. A blue bodied male was particularly interesting as he kept returning to the same grasshead overhanging the pond, again and again and I got several pleasing photos of him.
Many thanks for making all this info and beautiful photos public.
Hi! Chris, I am really amazed by your wonderful website which is really gorgeous. You've left no space for any doubt or comment, it is really a clever work a very useful and educative. Thanks for the pictures and your long hard work. If I were to choose the best sites, for sure your's would be my top. CONGRATULATIONS and keep the good work. All the best! regards, Hussein Kefel
Thanks for an impressive collection of shots, Chris and, as a new snapper of odonata in 2009, it's helpful to know the equipment you have been using. Let's look forward to a productive season in 2010.
A fantastic and comphrehensive website and a wonderful source for information and knowledge.
What a brilliant site. Not only superb images but the amount of information available is amazing. A perfect site for the odonato enthusiasts. Thanks for sharing.your knowledge and photography skills.
This extensive site covers all you need to know about dragonflies and damselflies. A quick identification tab guides you through the different species while the topography section includes labelled pictures and a glossary of anatomical terms. Being a photographer, the gallery and favourite pictures are sure to impress. What’s more, you can learn how to take shots like this yourself in the photography techniques section, which generously teaches you how to end up with fantastic photographs.
Really informative website which shows the diversity of wildlife in Britain. Excellent photos which must have taken a lot of patience to accumalate. Well done Chris.
Hi Chris, I found your website via Moonfruit and I was astounded by the quality of your dragonfly shots! I was very impressed by your images, and found the descriptions of your camera technique interesting in their own right!
Many Thanks Chris, now armed with my new digital slr + macro lens i will go forth and snap away knowing there is a very professional site to fall back on. Brilliant
Hi Chris, first can I say what an inspirational website you have, I have found myself on your sight many times to confirm ID's and have found your tips on taking pictures a great help. Keep up the good work. Keith
Top site Chris, I use it regularly for identifying my local damselflies and dragonflies. I like the narratives, some useful information on the habitats and characteristics. I'll be visiting again soon. Steve
Your naratives and pictures are great, Dave. I have Azure Blue and Small Red Damselflies in my garden every year but could never identify what they were properly. Thanks to the site, I now know what they are - and a little about what they do.
Very informative site and an amazing collection of images of dragonflies, damselflies and larvae.
Hi Chris, really impressive photos and some informative reading. I was impressed by the sites content and will be visiting again soon. Dave
