Excellent use of light and DOF, very detailed photos of each species. As others have said, your flight shots are especially impressive.

By the way, are you familiar with Odonata Central? They have tools for identifying dragonflies and damselflies, for checking to see which species are listed for your region, and, if one you have photographed is not already listed, to submit photo records. Your great photos could help add to the knowledge base, and efforts to conserve dragonflies too. Here's the website:

I agree, in fact I love those in flight photos and haven't a clue how they're achieved!
