Another Day at Stingray Swamp

28 December 2014

It rained a bit overnight and when I got in the swamp I found my first female Petalura gigantea. Unfortunately it looks like she was laying eggs in the swamp a couple of days prior when the weather closed in and she didn't have the energy to take off in the cold before night and misfortune. So there were more of these dragonflies around, which meant I had to stay an extra day in the hope of photographing a healthy female. Fortunately the weather forecast was finally looking great for insects and the the clouds were departing in the sunset.
