June 8 in Xuan Son seemed a day like many others, as far as Tetracanthagyna waterhousei was concerned. As usual I noticed one or two females flying about and ovipositing, but all of a sudden I bumped into a male, the first time I ever saw one. It flew a little bit and then hung up in a tree. But when I tried to get closer to take pictures it quickly took off. I was very disappointed, but in the evening and at a different location I saw a large Aeshnid and when I managed to catch it, it turned out to be another male! It is almost as massive as the female, but the dark blue eyes are very attractive.
