    Fantastic site!  Aided me with id'ing Yellow Sided Skimmer.  Mike F. in Round Rock, Texas,  Williamson Co.  Love the scans and may have to add some to my addiction.

    Bonjour, je suis de Montréal, Québec, j'apprécie beaucoup toutes vos libellules et un site francophone. Est-ce possible de voir en plus grand pour faciliter l'identification de libellules . Merci!

    Gayle, you and your wife may not remember but I toured with you guys at dragonfly days down in Weslaco about 2004 or earlier I'm not sure. I finally finished my Cooks Slough Nature Park in Uvalde in 2006. It only took 7 years. I was thinking about yall and wondered if you still were doing photography. I'm not yet retired but am starting this month to get out more and take some photos. I remember your scanner setup but never could duplicate what you did. I'd like to chronicle some of my work at Cooks Slough with scans. Your work is fantastic. Any pointers would be appreciated. Hope you are doing well.

    I am thrilled to have found your site! I thought I may have imagined a beauty I briefly encountered in my buttefly garden yesterday (101+ day here in North Texas...) Your excellent scans and images helped me identify not only the one in question but also a number of others. My garden opened a new world - taking time to tend it has intoduced me to many members of this micro-ecosystem. Your site has helped me identify the visitors and inhabitants. Thank you for the amazing work you share here.

    I am awed by the beauty of these dragonflies. I am working on a series of tiny paintings. Detailed drawings of birds and butterflies. Now i am distracted and want to switch to dragonflies! I thank for opening my eyes.

    I love your photos. Regarding your photo of G. westfalli on Eglin, do you need special permission to enter (or possibly net and release in) that area? I am planning a trip to the Panhandle next spring, and would love to add a similar photo to my collection. You can see some of my (non-professional) photos at

    Got your web page from Josh Rose. You have some really well done photo plates! I was wanting to know if you have any info on Tachopteryx locations in Louisiana. I just started a Ph.D. at LSU and would like to get to know the state a little better and perhaps collect some rare bugs in the process. I have a few (not very many) nice photos at
