      Hi guys, found this in the demo garden. I believe it is dragonfly exuvia. Not sure from what dragonfly? Can you ask the experts? Would like to know since I also seen a flame at the bird bath in the demo garden. Never had seen a dragonfly of that size in the demo garden, usually you see small damsels.


      exuvia
      cast skin from any larval molt (including transformation into adult)

            Hi Chris & Roger,

            I was looking at Roger's photograph of the exuvia
            and the compound eyes are too large and rounded to be
            any of the Libellulidae. The eyes are that of of an
            Aeshnidae. Due to the distinctly striped legs most
            likely it is of the genus Aeshna or Rhionaeschna.
            Perhaps, maybe, the Blue-eyed Darner would be a good
            guess.
