Lemon Pansy Underside It's amazing to me how different the underside (ventral view, looking at the animals belly) is from the topside (dorsal, the animals back) of this species. I initially thought this was two species until I reviewed the photos and found I had a series of photos of the butterfly flapping it's wings.

Two Skinks In Woodpile Hg We saw a total of three skinks in this area. The suspicion is that it is mating time.

Three-Spot Grass Yellow Sometimes I took a dozen photos of an individual before it flew. This butterfly I have only a single photo of - and it was gone.

Purple Sapphire These are small butterflies, but this particular one was very patient with me being close by. It has a beautiful purple dorsal side, but it didn't show it to me.

White Dragontail These were quite common in the day - we saw them in both locations, but they never stopped moving! Only late in the afternoon did they stop to feed, but they often kept beating their wings even when they standing on their legs.

Blue Tiger At first I didn't realize there there were a variety of "Tiger"'s - Black with light colours. The reserve had a sign showing a few of the species - Ceylon Blue, Blue, Dark Blue, Glassy and more. I tried harder to take photos of each one I saw.

Great Egg-fly In Bright Light This is a somewhat shaky identification - I believe the white spots on the wings are either overwhelmed by the blue or just worn off. I have a poor photo of the underside of the wing - it better matches (but still worn) Great Egg-fly.

In this species the male and female don't look anything alike.

Crimson Marsh Glider, Female BC Dragonflies don't have a lot of sexual dimorphism that I have seen - sometimes one is 10% larger and the tail tip area is sometimes different, but otherwise similar. Crimson Marsh Gliders are quite different colours - Crimson (red) for the males, this brownish orange for the females.

Common Tiger I saw four different kinds of "Tigers" today - characterized by the dark black stripes on either a light or orange background.
