Started the morning with ANOS members enjoying the orchids and the view around some of Victoria's high country. We saw quite a few orchids but it just wasn't warm enough for the numerous sun-orchids to open up.

In the evening I went spotlighting for frogs and roosting dragonflies. I found this mating Notoaeschna sagittata pair hanging off vegetation by a west-facing cliff along Tamboritha Rd. You often find darners like this resting on sunny cliff faces during the day and roosting at night.
