Walk along a marsh or pond and you will likely see dragonflies and damselflies, darting out to catch a fly or patrolling their territory. The future of these beautiful creatures is tied to the health and abundance of our watery habitats. Use our Dragonflies and Damselflies of Loudoun County Checklist to track which ones you see in area habitats.
