The Nymph of the Damselfly
At the beginning of summer the nymph leaves the water to begin it's metamorphasis.
The nymth climbs up a reed, the skin splits down it's back and the Damselfly emerges.
I have never been fortunate enough to actually witness this transformation,but thought I
would show the nymth-.cuticle, which eventually dries in the sun and falls in the water.
