Tully Gorge - Queensland Day 9
31 March 2013
A couple of days prior I had a good time at Tully Falls but wasn't prepared for being out in the sun
so still being in the area I prepared myself and went for the 1km walk to the top of the gorge again.
I also spent some time just relaxing in the shade by the creek.
All this was good as I again saw many dragonflies, about 20 species all up including 4 new ones.
Most of the new ones I saw only individuals and got limited photos, for example, for the
I only got some lateral photos and the appendages are not clear enough to separate it out from three possible species.
I got some good photos of a Shutwing
on this visit however, two days earlier I only saw one flying up a tree.
I did get a reasonable photo of Diplacodes trivialis but am not including it here as I saw many of this species later.
