East Gippsland Day 5

6 April 2010

Last day of my extended Easter long weekend I visited Raymond Creek in Snowy River National Park. For the first time at this campground there were actually other people camping!

Biggest highlight for me was seeing a Wide-faced Darner Dendroaeschna conspersa for the first time. These are rare in Victoria and not very common further north either.

I also observed a Threadtail damsel ovipositing (depositing eggs) on dry wood 1.5m above the waters edge. I assume when it rains it will wash the eggs into the billabong.
