This damselfly exuvia was found at Silver Lake in Brighton, Utah.
I'm hoping someday to get a photo
of a damselfly in the act of emerging from one of these. From
what I understand, the things that look
like strings are actually breathing tubes for use when the exuvia lived
some remarkable photos of a dragonfly emerging from the exuvia.
