I did a double-take when I saw your title … do you follow Steve Schwartzman by any chance? Check out this recent post of his … http://portraitsofwildflowers.wordpress.com/2014/07/22/exuviae-2/ … the minds of great photographers much indeed think alike. Great word … great shot. D

🙂 I do follow Steve Schwartzman, but I am VERY behind on visiting everyone, so didn’t have the chance to see his post. Thank you very much for bringing it to my attention. His shot is amazing! He was very kind to me early on when I started blogging to answer a number of my photography questions. Thanks, Dave! And I do intend to stop over soon!

It’s called Yago in Japan and quite common in a pond etc —–

Their metamorphosis is the wonder of the nature.

Almost baroque in its grotesqueness! I love it.
