Thank you Neil, you have lots of nice photographs too.
I wish I can go to Australia and take pictures of many great species that you have there.

Thank you Taka, I will recheck that.
Maybe if you are a dragonfly specialist, you can help me on that one, http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/369...

Not a Scarlet Darter, but a Sympetrum species, probably Sympetrum vulgatum.
