Yellow-striped Flutterer

On a recent trip to Hervey Bay Botanical Gardens we were lucky enough to have this beautiful dragonfly land close enough for me to take its photo. It is a Yellow-striped Flutterer. This particular group of dragonflies are not as fast flying as others, and this one stayed in the same spot for quite a while so I could get very close without disturbing it.
