Dragonfly Moult

Most of the dragonfly’ life is spent in the nymph form underwater.  They breathe through gills in their rectum. When the larva is ready for metamorphosis, it climbs up plants.  The skin splits at a weak spot behind the head and the adult dragonfly crawls out of the old larval skin.
