New odonate exuviae in 2018 (by family)

2018 is the year I got serious about macro photography of odonate exuviae. I bought lots of new photography gear and spent hours learning to use it, and spent more time refining my workflow for creating focus-stacked composite images.

I am blessed to have several mentors who have patiently taught me a lot about identification of odonate exuviae, and many friends who have kindly collected and shared specimens with me. Sincere thanks to Sue and John GregoireRichard OrrMichael PowellBob PerkinsMike BoatwrightAndy Davidson, and Joe Johnston.
