The New York Times ran a very good article about dragonflies entitled "Stalking the Wild Dragonfly". I recently acquired the very thorough field guide, "Dragonflies Through Binoculars", which is quite helpful, but they are difficult insects to learn. As the article points out, "dragonflies are fast and we’re slow”.
