Avon River to Snowy River

29 March 2012

The same dragonfly I had observed the previous evening was perched overnight and by the morning had developed pearls of dew: Unicorn Darner Austroaeschna unicornis.

By the evening I had made it to Raymond Creek campground in the Snowy River National Park. With a relatively new torch in hand I spent the hour after dark hunting for frogs in the rockpools of the creek, eventually getting success to the extent that I could even photograph them whilst the frog was croaking, which I was very happy about. I also took some short videos but they are of average quality but at least you can hear the sounds they make. http://youtu.be/_Y8546Xa1LQ
