Cycle of Life

I received an education in Dragonfly life cycle when I looked closer at the blade of grass he was perched on.

That's not a bug on the other side of the grass, it's an exoskeleton left behind when a dragonfly emerged from its nymph stage.

Here's a site with Photos depicting Dragonfly Life Cycle including an emergence sequence http://bit.ly/107SEs
