More Dragonflies of the Grampians

31 December 2013

A significant sighting of the day was this female Hemiphlebia mirabilis damselfly in the obelisk position. Numerous odonata are known to do this on hot days they point their abdomen towards the sun to minimise direct exposure so avoid overheating. This is less common in damselflies (compared to dragonflies) and this behaviour hasn't been observed for this species previously.
