Australian Flatwing (Austroargiolestes icteromelas)
I had a bit of annual leave and got my camera back from repairs so decided to spend a morning taking some photographs. I found a nearby stream and set up a camping chair and just waited and watched the wildlife and occasionally took some photos. Whilst waiting and enjoying the tranquility I came across this damselfly which landed on a nearby rock and could not resist taking some photos. This is a stack of about 8 photos which were taken handheld in quick succession and stacked in Helicon focus. Camera settings were 1/1000 sec, f/5.0, ISO 640, and I used the Sony A7R 4 and the Sigma 150mm Macro. I am not great with species ID but I believe this is an Australian / Common Flatwing (Austroargiolestes icteromelas) based on the morphology.
