Dragonflies and Damselflies

Talk by: Bob Dennison

Bob’s illustrated talk will aim to showcase a selection of Radnorshire’s dragonfly and damselfly species and habitats, setting our local Odonata in a Wales, UK and international context. He will also outline their unique life cycle and aspects of their physiology which have enabled these impressive insects to survive for over 300 million years.
