Dragonfly Larva Husk

You can see where the adult fly must have broken out of the shell. It would have been interesting to watch. I wonder how long it takes. I remember reading that dragonflies can live as larva for many years, but they only live for the summer as adults.

Location: Beaver Lake, near Sitka, Alaska
