Melbourne Waterbug Blitz

The Dragonfly Festival event was held on Saturday October 20th.

Unfortunately heavy rain meant only 4 of us were in the Australian Native Garden.

However we were joined by a family of wood ducks. Seven day old ducklings seen here sheltering under mum.

Other venues had more attendees and we met up at the SNHC in the afternoon to find out what we had captured in our samples. This study will give an insight into water quality.

When reviewing one sample we were treated to the final transformation of a midge.
