Returned to where I'd seen Austrogomphus amphiclitus for the first time the afternoon prior in the hope that I'd see another one and get some better photos. I saw numerous dragonflies but not what I was looking for until right near the end. But what I at first thought was the same species was in fact another new species for me: Twin-spot Hunter Austrogomphus melaleucae.

Later I waded around a swamp near Emmaville for ages trying to photograph Common Gliders but I only got poor quality photos as I never got close enough. What made it harder was I had to keep moving in the swamp as it harboured leeches so if I stood still for a minute the little suckers would come biting!
