At last another species to add to my list. This time in the shape of Macromia moorei. I saw one patrolling the same area of a small, clear and exposed stream. I tried again and again to get a shot in flight, but they were all terrible. Finally, it rested and I managed to get shots of it and even catch it (luckily as I wouldn't have been able to ID it properly otherwise). It's a new genus for me and, thanks to Noppadon, I am now aware that it is also a provincial record! I know that there is a Macromia species that resides at Nam Nao. I have seen it numerous times but never got anywhere near it. I now have to catch it to find out. Watch this space.
Now in the hand ...
Note his rather bland face.
The appendages ... (ventral, then dorsal)
