Peek of the Week 150

By Sand Pilarski

Dragonfly poised above exuvia

I woke the other morning to see a dragonfly that had crawled up the side of the door to shed its skin and enter its adult phase. The casing of its immature stage is called an "exuvia"; the immature insect is known as a "nymph". I will be posting other pictures of this in my blog this week.

Lighting was provided by Alexandra Queen.
