Dare I stumble in the dark in the presence of dragons.
I had a really wonderful experience back at the end of March searching for dragonflies at Gold Creek near Brisbane with an enthusiastic band of Dragonfly seekers. Thank you to Rod Hobson and Chris Burwell et al. for directions and advice on dragonflies around that special place. The place was a hum with a variety of dragonflies and lots of happy people studying them. It was a nice way to wake up after a long winter in Japan.
The images I am uploading here, I am naming from memory, and could be possibly messing up badly on an international stage. But here I will fumble and fall to be battle scarred and wiser for future ventures into the realms of dragons. Plus I took about 1700 pics on the day and have a lot to get through. I am also referring to my copy of “The Complete Field guide to Dragonflies of Australia”, By Gunther Theischinger and John Hawking, CSIRO, 2012.
