Oklahoma Dragonflies and Damselflies

Photographed around back yard and pond in northeastern Oklahoma. About 25 dragonfly and 13 damselfly species have been photographed so far at the pond.
A few other species were found nearby: Calico Pennant, Halloween Pennant, Spangled Skimmer, Swamp Darner and Familiar Bluet
These can change appearance with age so several photos of each species are included from the season.

Photos and data for 43 species have been submitted to the U. Texas database (Odonata Central)
