Brilliant macro shot. Large DOF are hard to obtain in macro and was here necessaray to present well the old exuvia and the fresh adult. You did perfectly.
I've seen many exuvia before but never noticed the tracheas. Impressive and interesting to look at it. I never realised before that trachea's had to be renewed too.
composition is excelent too.

Original y bello trabajo Dietrich. Gran profundidad que ese f20 te facilitó y sensibilidad del fotógrafo al hacernos ver de una manera tan sencilla y clara los detalles de esos pequeños insectos durante su muda. Buena explicación.
Saludos: Josep Ignasi.

Beautiful 2-in-1 capture of the adorable insects with great details!
The sharpness and POV are perfect with nice color contrast, existing within the picture. The picture has superb focusing and the clarity is exceptionally well done.
Very well done composition!

I wish I had more time............
However I cannot pass this by without saying. Wonderful and detailed close-up. All around a special image, with features greatly seen. Just love the dotted details on the insect on the foreground, as well as its glassy wings. Thanks for sharing.

You obviously have an amazing backyard with many insects living there rent free, so the occasional pose is a small price to pay. Great presentation of these two stages. great note.
Good composition, sharpness and details
Good DOF and background

Was ich auf den ersten Blick als zweite Wanze angesehen habe, war ja nur das Kleid, das sie abgestreift hat. Wirklich interessantes Posting! Sehr schön fotografiert und guter Bildaufbau. Beste Bildschärfe und natürliche Farben. Noch herzlichen Dank für den gestrigen Tag, er war wunderschön.

A very attractive and interesting photo, nice composition, excellent color and sharpness. An excellent note too. Thanks for explaining what the white tubes are. I took some photos of a Periodic Cicada right after it emerged from its nymphal "shell" and those white tubes are very visible in those shots too, always wondered what they were.

Hi Dietrich, again.
You managed to catch an unique scene. It is very interesting and cognitive. Face-to-face POV is very attractive/ Lights and DOF are great as usual for your works. Details of all scene is terrific. Well done and all the best.
