Queensland naturalist trip - dragonflies

March 26, 2015 — August 26, 2016

I left France to Australia, where I spent almost 2 years travelling through Queensland and looking for wildlife. My first passion goes to snakes and birds, but the Australia's wildlife is so amazing that I quickly started to study and photograph every animal I saw, from frogs to mammals, spiders, insects...

Here are all the dragonflies and damselflies recorded in Queensland during my field trip and for each species one or several photos I took.

I am new in dragonflies and I am not quite sure about the identification of some species so you are more than welcome to correct my notes :)

All the pictures are from me.
