The Why? Group

Right: Azure Damselfly (both © Alex Berryman)The BDS has a new Dragonfly Discussion Group - a forum for dragonfly enthusiasts to present and talk about interesting observations and personal study projects with a view to receiving feedback and stimulating further discussion.

The group is aimed at UK species, though observations need not necessarily have been made in Britain. Questions include the occurrence of blue colour form Southern Hawkers, potential hybrids between Azure and Variable damselflies (pictured right, both © Alex Berryman) and more.

Anyone can visit the site, hosted by Google Groups, and anyone can apply to join. To avoid spamming, applications have to be approved.
