[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

In my third picture you can see that the Blue Emperor has already hatched completely out of the exuvia. Only the wings of the Dragonfly are still not completly unfolded but already lesser folded than in my previuos picture.



In meinem dritten Bild kann man nun sehen, dass die Große Königslibelle bereits vollständig aus der Exuvie geschlüpft ist. Nur die Flügel sind noch nicht ganz aufgefaltet, aber schon deutlich mehr als in meinem vorherigen Bild.
