With the holiday season winding down, we thought it was time to take a closer look at what’s going on with dragonflies in Sydney.
And, in case you’re not up on your dragonfly-watching history, here are five tips to make the most of your dragonflies:1.
Catch ’em all.
While there are a few species of dragonfly that are native to Sydney, the majority of them are brought here by humans, who bring them here from the UK and Asia, and feed them.
In the past, we’ve seen a lot of “shelter-bred” dragonflies brought here to Sydney from China and Korea.
There are even a few that are bred for commercial use, so it’s a good idea to have a close look at the breed to make sure it’s suitable for the city.
The most popular species are the white and brown ones.
They are the most popular and have a distinctive look.2.
Pick your prey.
While dragonflies are quite easy to catch, the biggest problem is that they tend to stick around for a long time.
So make sure you catch them in the middle of the day, in the early afternoon or even early evening, so they can get out of the city and find a suitable place to eat.
Some species are more attracted to the bright lights of the urban centre, so you’ll want to make a quick stop at a cafe or cafe-like restaurant before heading out.3.
Don’t just catch ’em!
Some species of white and black dragonflies will fly into a frenzy if you catch their eyes.
If you catch a black dragonfly in the evening, it’s not a good time to catch them because it will likely fly straight towards you.
Try to avoid them, because if you miss, you’re just feeding the wrong species of food.4.
Don the mask.
It’s not just a costume, it is also a way of protecting your body from predators.
For instance, a black fly can also be seen in Australia as a white fly, so don’t underestimate the danger you’re putting yourself in.5.
Avoid flying at dusk or dawn.
It might be tempting to make your flight as quick as possible to catch your dragonfish.
However, the most important thing to remember is to always be aware of the dangers associated with flying at night or dawn because they can be quite dangerous.
Take extra precautions at dusk and dawn to make it easier for your dragon.
