Noojee to Warburton

20 October 2013

Started the morning at Toorongo Falls near Noojee, seeing the female Austropetalia tonyana early in the morning before she took off. Dragonflies usually emerge after dusk and pump themselves up overnight and then take off at first light, probably high up a tree somewhere to begin their adult life.

During the day I travelled via the picturesque Ada Tree reserve through to Warburton where I spent the afternoon at La La Falls and was able to photograph another dragonfly, this time a male Austropetalia tonyana. La La Falls is considerably smaller than Toorongo Falls so I was able to move around when I saw the male land.
