  1. Search for a Banded Dragonfly on an island between 8:00 AM–5:00 PM.

  3. Run either to the back left or back right of the Banded Dragonfly to force it to turn.
  4. It takes a long time to turn, so you might be able to catch it then!
  5. If you can’t catch it while it’s turning, chase it into a tree, cliff, or building. It will take a long time to turn around, and that’s how you can catch it!
