Rare diagnostic photographs of the Wide-faced Darner Dragonfly taken by Citizen Scientist, Nora Peters.

Some spectacular images have been taken by Nora Peters (member of Pinkerton Landcare and Environment Group) while on a recent visit to Mulla Mulla Grasslands, Mt. Cottrell Road, Mt. Cottrell on 8 April 2012. Especially exciting is the image of the Wide-faced Darner Dragonfly, as according to the scientists "diagnostic photographs of this species are non-existent."

I went to Bush's Paddock yesterday for about an hour, could only find spiders and the caterpillars....not the dragonfly, will try again on the next hot day...
