Last Day at Stingray Swamp

29 December 2014

Finally a warm and sunny day for my dragonfly hunting, and more success as within moments of each other I saw two mating pairs of Petalura gigantea. Unfortunately I still hadn't got a good photo of a female of this species but later After lunch I saw the same female from the second mating pair depositing eggs in the grassy swamp.

At lunch I was joined on my log in the shade by a cool jumping spider. There were several flowering shrubs feeding mainly wasps and flies but it was too windy and they were too active for me to get decent photos thereof.
