Moulting gone wrong

Poor grasshopper tried to moult, but got stuck half-way... You can see that it didn't even manage to get its antenna completely out.

 

Shot with 55mm nikkor micro, extension rings, off-camera flash from left and right (at 1/8th-ish), f/16, 1/320th. ISO200. Triggered with ebay triggers.

 

The grasshopper died, but I do not know when... I hope it was still alive during the picture-taking, but I'm really not sure.
