An alder fly lives for 1 to 2 years – but only 2 to 3 weeks outside as a fly outside the water. Once the larva hatches from the egg, it drops in the water and stays there for the majority of its life.
Empty eyes (literally) and a look like an alien… The empty hull of a dragonfly larva.
Last weekend on a little lake in the forest: a young dragonfly is hanging on the grass to inflate and dry the wings. Shot on my Sony ILCE-7RM3 with the FE 90mm F2.8 G OSS Macro; Edited in Aurora HDR.
The ghost of the lake is an empty dragonfly larva in the moss. The larva is usually hiding under water in the mud – but one day those spacey creatures get out in the sun and a dragonfly makes her way out of it. Shot
