Kathy Biggs did the dragonfly enthusiasts of California and the whole southwest a great service over a decade ago when she filled a huge void by compiling her extensive notes on dragonflies into her helpful little pocket guides. Since then, she has completely revised and updated them, and I own multiple copies and keep one permanently in my field guide bag that I always grab when I head out into the field.
