    Product information

    Watching dragonflies dart among the plants on a riverbank or at the edge of your pond is one of the joys of summer. But do you know a Southern Damselfly from a Variable Damselfly? Or can you tell the difference between a Scarce Chaser and a Keeled Skimmer? Dragonflies and damselflies – known collectively as Odonata – are some of our most fascinating insects. Although they only live for a short time, they have many behaviours that are easy to observe, including captivating aerial skills that they utilise to hunt in mid-air.

    This useful fold-out chart presents illustrations of 42 of our most widespread and familiar Odonata by renowned artist Richard Lewington.

    ✔ Species are grouped by family and helpfully labelled to assist with identification.
    ✔ Artworks are shown side by side for quick comparison and easy reference at home or in the field.
    ✔ The reverse of the chart provides information on the habitats, behaviour, life cycles and diets of our dragonflies and damselflies, as well as the conservation issues they are facing and how the RSPB is working to support them.
    ✔ Practical tips on how to install a wildlife pond and make your garden more dragonfly- and damselfly-friendly are also included.
    ✔ By Marianne Taylor.
    ✔ Published July 2020.
    ✔ Dimensions when folded 210 x 148mm (A5).

    The ID Spotlight charts help wildlife enthusiasts identify and learn more about our most common species using accurate colour illustrations and informative, accessible text."
