Image: Ready to lay! - Xavier Hoenner
This photo was taken while I was participating in a marine turtle research program in North East Island, a sacred site for the Warnindilyakwa people of Groote Eylandt, Northern Territory. I saw this colourful female dragonfly at the edge of the mangrove, enjoying a nice morning breeze. Although I like to think she remained there for me to photograph her, I suspect all she wanted was just a bit of privacy to lay her eggs in nearby still waters.
