Ready for the Mardi Gras? Another nice one, Bente. AS for the eyes, I think it is as for snakes shedding their skins - the eye-cap is also sheadded and that is one reason they are so irritible. Nice note too.

Lovely detail shot! I must admit I didn't realise that they had two sets of eyes during their lifecycle, so that came as some of an eye-opener (if you'll pardon the pun)! I suppose it should have been obvious looking at the larvae and then the adults, but I'd never really thought about it before... Technically good, although I'd probably have liked a little more DOF, but I realise that's a tradeoff with flash power and background balance. Maybe more flash power, diffused a bit more? Anyway, I like and thanks for the informative note :-D

Very nice bente all shinney and new, very well controled a image of oposits light and dark, beause the emerging dragon fly is so white and shiney with body fluids to help it out of the shell.
good explination of what you where atemping to atchieve and observing, and poses a good question that somebody might know the answer, I certainly do not, Ive never seen a picture of this stage so clearly. Thank you

An amazing close-up, Bente, I don't recall ever having seen the like of it. Wonderful details and clarity, and perfect title to summarize the stage of the transformation that we are seeing here. Very good notes, too.

Another cracking shot of the birth - just like the one on TE but this time with a very special effect caused by the angle and the dark surroundings and of course the fact that he has not come out of the larvaskin yet. Looks like he is sitting in a backsack - like an indian baby;-).

This is another very good one Bente. The emerging dragonfly looks so pristine and soft. Great subject, picture and notes.
