Wonnangatta River

28 January 2012

Searched the bushes for hanging dragonflies in the morning with some success — I was able to get fairly close to a male Southern Cascade Darner Spinaeschna tripunctata for the first time.

Most of the day was spent travelling further up the Wonnangatta River towards Maroka Junction but it was a hot day and I didn't see too much at the spots I stopped at.

In the evening I made it back to my spot and then did some spot–lighting with a weak torch (stumbling through the prickly thistles and all that). The Katydids (or Bush Crickets) were chirping away but I also saw two pairs of coupled Spinaeschna tripunctata.
