Just Like Brand New
Off we go into the new year; it's right now, what better time to molt away past things; what better time to fly.
(And what better time to focus stack! Couldn't get the exuviae really in line with the bug. Didn't want to scare off our little green mayfly friend, so there was a lack of cajoling. Still fairly cooperative. To many more cooperative bugs ahead!)
(Addendum: didn't realize mayflies were the Ephemeroptera. Very apt name for them, but maybe for all of us...if you think aboubt it. I dig it. :o)
