I was curious, so I looked up

A dragonfly leaves it’s exuvia

The dragonfly life cycle is quite amazing! I will be making a kid friendly post on the life cycle of dragonflies soon but for now I will say, it is a really enjoyable experience waiting for very tiny window in which these guys will emerge and shed their exuvia. This beauty came up though my dock and attached itself to some nearby grass. Once it finished rolling out it’s new wings, it reached out and “felt” it’s old skin once more before taking it’s first flight.
