Description

First visit at 1:50AM. Second visit was at 4:30AM and she was ready to fly. I could only get a few photos on the second visit because the torch light made her think the sun had risen and she had to fly off into the forest. Most local darners emerge at night and fly off into the trees at first light (before the birds wake up).
