Dragonflies and damselflies hunt and ID

Hunt for and ID dragonflies and damselflies.

Look out for dragonflies and damselflies, and spot the difference between them.

  • There are three main differences: eyes, shape and wings
  • These bugs zip through the air, so you’ll need to be quick to spot them!
  • You might find one or two resting on leaves

Watch for them hunting by water.
