Discarded exoskeleton (exuvia) of a Large Red Damsefly nymph

Photo Information
The nymph had emerged from the pond earlier that day and moulted on an iris leaf. Just as I was about to press the shutter, the 'rubbernecking' fly 'pulled up' next to it. Sigma 70mm EX DG Macro with strong, natural sidelighting.

Now I like this because of your decision to include both in the same shot rather than a single study- adds interest.
Cheers, Gary
