This was certainly worth the wait - I filled the gap of the adults of my green/yellow nymph spotting. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/792... And I've photographed several hundred other species while waiting.

Churchill National Park, under the power lines. These are worth sharing.

A worthwhile work of patience. I must keep an eye open for these.
