CATALINA'S DAMSELFLIES AND DRAGONFLIES
Learn more about these jewels of the aquatic world.

On the edges of lakes, rivers and streams, dragonflies and damselflies stage aerial combats, patrol their territories, select their mates, and skillfully hunt a variety of insect prey.

They are superb fliers and fearsome predators, colorful, and impossibly difficult to catch - unless you know their secrets. Under the surface of the water, the other half of their lives is also dramatic and mysterious. There too, they are fearsome predators, superbly adapted to their aquatic life.

Come with us and follow the complex lives of these jewels of the aquatic world in a photo gallery by Carlos de la Rosa.
