One of the "perchers". A common dragonfly mostly found perching on the ground. The female is greenish yellow and the male is pale blue in colour (giving rise to another of the common names "chalky percher").


Spotted in a large semi-urban yard and garden adjacent to a disturbed patch of remnant forest.
