Nososticta solida (Orange Threadtail)
IUCN Status: Not Assessed.
This species has a very large range, from the western side of The Cape down the eastern coast and around the southern coast, well into The Bite, and extending inland fate beyond the Great Dividing Range. They are quite common around slow running creeks even still water, breeding during the spring.
I found numerous individuals flying around a creek near Mount Mee national park. It was later in the day, and they were looking for somewhere to roost. Dragon and damsel flies rely on basking and warm weather. As it cools they become much more dormant. Photographing them up close with a macro lens corresponding shifts from utterly impossible to merely extremely difficult.
