Michael Fox will be presenting about Dragonflies.
Michael Fox, a well known local nature photographer, will do a presentation on Odonates (Dragonflies and Damselflies) at our next chapter meeting on March 19, 2020 at Global Spheres. Mr. Fox has lived in North Texas all his life and spent much of his youth in Fannin County. He began photographing nature in 2011 at LLELA and was drawn to Dragonflies and Damselflies through iNaturalist. He has since photo-documented over 80 species of Odonates, most of them at LLELA. When he can break away from Dragonflies, he manages to find time to earn a living in the global IT market.
During his presentation, Mr. Fox will discuss the history and anatomy of Odonates and talk about the differences between Dragonflies and Damselflies. He will also provide tips on how to observe them, including the best times and locations to see them as well as the best binoculars, spotting scopes, and cameras to use to get a better view. In addition, he will go over some of the field guides you can use to identify them. Given that the Texas Master Naturalist logo is the Dragonfly, this will be an interesting and informative presentation.
