Dragonfly Hemicordulia australiae 5 Sep 2017 KerriLee

Author's notes

The metallic blue-green reflections from the 'face' help to identify this species, even in flight. On the day of this sighting, several males had been patrolling the area, constantly on the wing. Even mating pairs rarely landed. Just time for one quick photo and they were off again!
