Rainforest dragonfly


This photo also sent to me from Maggie.  If you've been looking at my last post on Snap Happy Birding, you will have already seen her pics of the wonderful Brahminy Kite.

I know there's many butterfly blog-posters on the other side of the world who're sure to enjoy this very handsome dragonfly.  Maybe, with any luck, someone perhaps from Northern Qld., will also be able to let me know the name of this one, which was photographed recently at Emerald Creek.

Ok trying again now that i have a google account. I am glad everybody enjoyed my Brahminy Kite photos. I think this blue dragonfly is just about the coolest dragonfly I have ever seen. You are a great fan of dragonflies.... what do you think?

goodo Maggie; you made it to Google/comments; hurray! I wondered if you had the x50 camera when I looked up the exif data it seemed to indicate that. And yes I am a dragonfly fan from way back, it even forms a part of my email address. it is a super dragonfly.
