[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Good morning - todays post is a phascinating moment - I were very surprised to see it in real.

It's a Stinkbugs right after moulting.
It had a fresh green colour and a crinkled skin.

And it looks at his old skin like it were an alien!

At their growth of Embryo to the adult animal (Imago) Stinkbugs pass through 5 moults. They are hemimetabol - that means, the larvae become similar to the adult step by step.

(The Hemipterodea, are a superorder of insects of the subclass Pterygota in the infraclass Neoptera, in which the young resemble adults but have externally-developing wings. They undergo a modest change between larva and adult, without going through a pupal stage. The larvae develop gradually into adults through a process of moulting.)

Hallo Sabine und Stephan,
Wunderschoenes Photo dieser gruenen Wanze
die nur noch durch einen letzten Chitinrest, wie durch eine vertrocknete Nabelschnur, mit seiner Larvenhaut verbunden ist. Ja, man kann sich wirklich wundern, was die Insekten wohl bei ihrer Metamorphose empfinden. Ist es wie eine Neugeburt, oder das Ueberschreiten einzelner Altersphasen.
Wirklich genial gemacht, und Danke, Patrick

wow, das ist ja cool, sabine! :-)
da hast du den einzigartigen und wichtigen moment im leben
der wanze perfekt erwischt mit wieder einmal einmaligen
details und wunderschönen kräftigen farben.
das passt ja ganz gut zu meinem grünen freund von gestern.
toll gemacht & einen schönen samstag, thorsten.

Hello Sabine,

Superb macro work... Wonderful details and strong good colours!
Excellent composition...

Hi Sabine,

What an original shot. Looks like the man in the Shakepeare novel watching at a skull and wondering "To be or not to be, that's the question". ;o)
Superb catch !
TFS.

Hallo Sabine,
ein absolutes Spitzenfoto, in jeder Hinsicht! Du warst im richtigen Augenblick am richtigen Ort, ich bin total begeistert, so etwas habe ich noch nicht gesehen. Es ist schon unwahrscheinlich, was du mit dem Makro leistet. Mit Deinen Bildern kann man muehelos ein Biologiestudium betreiben.
TFS..Sky

Foto straordinaria...e non servono tante parole. Complimenti ciao gigicacco

Wow, it is really new and imaculate :)
Excellent moment captured in a perfect way.
Good details, and I like very much how you elongated the BG choosing a dark frame.
Thanks.
PD: I have around 150 fungi species identified and clasified, I will write the book when I reach 300 :) Regards.

Bonsoir Sabine,
Félicitations pour cette photo très intéressante et réussie !
J'aime bien l'expression d'étonnement qui donne un côté humoristique à cette photo. Bien vu !
Bon weekend.
Martine

Excellent Sabine!
What I like most is the insect face-to-face with it's shed skin..Everything looks fantastic...the subject really stands out here..
Very well done mf.

haha
looks like a double take on 'did i really look like that'
as usual with your work,.. which is technically beyond me but able to be greatly appreciated..
sharpness, natural colours, and perfect lighting
thanks
geof

Hallo Sabine,
packendes Dokument einer glücklich vollbrachten Häutung - das Insekt scheint sogar noch wie durch eine Nabelschnur mit seiner alten Hülle verbunden zu sein. Technisch und konzeptuell perfekt, Details, FArbe und Kontrast einfach hervorragend!
Und darüber hinaus eine herrliche allegorische Botschaft, wenn es gilt, nach kurzer Sommerpause in ein neues Arbeitsjahr hinein zu wachsen - oder auch nur nach einem geglückten Wochenende in die neue Arbeitswoche.
Mit Glückwunsch, Dank und lieben Grüßen,
Peter

Outstanding moment you've captured!
Great composition, DOF and POV.
The sharpness and colours achieved are very impressive also.
Very well done.
Thanks for sharing.
My best regards,

Filipe

Great macro, so sharp and well lighted. So much details. Thanks for sharing Sabine.

No words, no comments, no critiques only one- Perfect!

Wowww... Outstanding capture of this moment, the POV is very unique and well focused too. Good job with the clarity, looks like the semi-fast shutter speed froze everything nicely. Very educative shot MF Sabine!
TFS and have a great day!
Cheers,

Bayram
