In itself the Blue Skimmer exuvia is not that exciting, but the way you present it in this shot with its fine composition, sharpness, lighting and contrasting BG makes it fascinating and a joy to see.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Fantastic capture of this shell vacated by a dragonfly in the process of its metamorphosis, Chris.
I have yet to see one with my own eyes.
Well done and TFS.

Hola Chris. Siempre he admirado a los insectos, sobre todo aquellos que de alguna manera tienen posibilidades de Metamorfosis. Quien y cuando ordena este proceso? Saludos Luis52.
Hi Chris and really sorry for the delay.
I've been mostly out in the fild these past couple of days searching for some new animals :)
This is a splendid shot of this exuvia. I've been searching for some just yesterday, too, but i wasn't that lucky :)
The details here are excellent and the textures of that "hard-skin" are very ncely visible.
It's also great that you found it in such a "simple" place and that the BG isn't made of different other plants that would have interferes with the subject.
Bravo and TFS
