Caption: Emperor dragonfly metamorphosis. Image 3 of 3. Fully emerged adult emperor dragonfly (Anax imperator, green) suspended from its larval skin (exuvium, brown). After metamorphosis, the adult rests on a plant stem and pumps blood into its wings and fills its abdomen with air. To see a sequence of the adult emerging, see Z300/0291 to Z300/0293.
