Welcome to the Dragonfly WebSite. We are continually working to create a great resource for information on dragonfly-related subjects, including education, conservation and ecology. We welcome any contributions from our visitors.
A dragonfly is an insect belonging to the order Odonata, characterized by large
multifaceted eyes, two pairs of strong, transparent wings, and an elongated body.
Dragonflies are similar to damselflies, but adults hold their wings away from,
and perpendicular to the body when at rest.
