Inside an Exoskeleton

Here is the left-over exoskeleton of a Dragonfly Nymph. The nymph is the under-water bug stage of a dragonfly. When it's ready to transition, it climbs out of the water, attaches itself to a stalk of grass or wood and literally pulls itself out of its shell. An incredible creature at every stage of its life.
