I haven’t a clue how to ID dragonflies. But they’re lovely predators.

How to ID Dragonflies:
1) Take close-up photos of their privates. Side view > top view
2) Post photos on iNaturalist
4) ID obtained! Congratulations!
Really though. Dragonflies, butterflies, and birds. I swear some people have fire-alarm style alerts set up that wake them up so they can be the first to ID them. I think even my worst, blurriest dragonflies from Malawi ended up with IDs within a week.
