Nunnock Swamp to Myanba Gorge

13 February 2014

Camped by Nunnock Swamp and started seeing dragonflies quite early. I spent time chasing almost mature male Diplacodes melanopsis, because of their yellow-orange-red coloration, but was only able to get close to one female.

It became overcast and light ran fell by the early evening so I saw few invertebrates until the evening when I got to Myanba Gorge (in South East Forests National Park) and the crayfish were on the march. The first one I saw was a fairly small one walking upstream but as I was readying my camera a much larger one lunged out from a crevice and crushed the first one in its huge claws.
