Title of talk: Chasing dragons and damsels in south-east Queensland

 Chris will talk about his photographic journey to obtain dragonfly and damselfly images for the recently published pocket guide to the Dragonflies and Damselflies of South-east Queensland. The talk will feature interesting aspects of the biology of our local species and the role that of citizen scientists can play in documenting changes in the distributions of dragonfly and damselfly species over time.
