Dragonfly exuvia close-up

Dragonfly exuvia close-up
So far, at least five nymphs have emerged from my garden pond, leaving behind the cast-off outer casings, or exuviae. As far as I can tell, they were all southern hawker nymphs - on two occasions I found the newly emerged dragonfly clinging on next to the exuvia. The notes show a full image of the exuvia, and a pair of nymphs resting partly out of the water
