Emerging Damselfy - Chromagrion conditum
Another damsel in the process of becoming an adult. It was so tempting to pull the exuvia off the adult and 'help' it out. But, ecdysis is an important process and its best to let the insect do the work.
Habitat: Small wooden footbridge in a wetland. This bridge had a bunch of damselflies in different stages of emergence.
The Aurora Damsel is the only member of its genus. The males are blue on segments 8 and 9 of the abdomen, while on the females those segments are brown and black. Both sexes have yellow on the sides of the thorax.
