More Dragonflies from Long Swamp

27 December 2013

The area I explored the previous afternoon and then this morning did not have much of interest so since I was not too far away I decided to return to the new section of Long Swamp. These days I try to follow the philosophy of if your at a good sight you don't leave until you're satisfied. So it was more exploring the same swamp I visited the previous morning and saw mostly more of the same things, allowing me to try and get the best photos I could.

Of interest, I observed one male Eastern Billabongfly, this being in the same area where there were numerous South-western Billabongfly. Until this sighting it was not known that their ranges overlapped nor if they would be found in the same wetland.

I also saw quite a few Swamp Tigertails, which all start looking more like the Tasmanian endemic than the one from the mainland. Unfortunately I ended up only getting photos of the males on this day.
