East Coast Tasmania

19 February 2017

Started off at Apsley River, a rocky gorge that would be heaven for odonata — just not in Tasmania's cool climate (at least on this day). I stopped at a few spots along the east coast including another one for Austrothemis nigrescens, a rare dragonfly in Tasmania (and Victoria).

Thanks to Matthew Connors for identifying the mantids.
