Started off at Bunya Mountains National Park, quite a beautiful spot. Although too cold (at about 1000m altitude on a mild day) for much invertebrate activity I still saw some butterflies and a new dragonfly: Sigma Darner Austroaeschna sigma. I first saw a male while driving and was not able to get a decent photo but a short distance later I stopped for lunch at a picnic spot and a female landed on some railing only a few metres from me and sunned itself.

In the evening I made it to Lake Broadwater (south-west of Dalby). Although dark by the time I got here I saw many frogs on the road close to the park — hopefully I have identified them correctly.
