Cordulegaster boltonii - eclosion 5
To understand better the picture you need to see my previous picture
At this time of hatching, the dragonfly starts pumping liquid to inflate their wings and stomach. The growth of the wings and the body can be seen by every minute. Next picture you will see how is it.

Hello Jose,
Whew.... I can almost feel it's sigh of relief after struggling to get free of it's exoskeleton. What a wonderful way to view this long process through your beautiful photographs. I'm quite certain your next image will be awesome and well worth the wait.
Unless I'm just imagining it, I believe there is a very tiny fly like insect that has landed on the top left hand side of the exoskeleton. I swear I can barely make out two glowing eyes, two antenna, wings and very small legs. What do you think?

Hello Jose,
I fully agree with the accolades by Luciano, Mario and Ron. What a fantastic series. In addition to the very good photography, it also is very meaningful in efficiently depicting a struggle for life and the sigh of relief by all of us is the reward for its merit. And what wonderful composition.
