NEW ZEALAND northern North Island


The only odes seen on this brief visit were at Waro Lake, well north on North Is., and the only one photographed was this tiny red damsel (above) Xanthocnemis zealandica [Common Redcoat Damsel]. A dragonfly seen in flight over that lake may have been Hemicordulia australiae [Australian Emerald]. The tip to visit this spot, and the identifications, were proposed by Detlef Davies.
