O nymph reserved

Last Saturday I walked with my oldest daughter in the forests at Vaakkoi, and by the lake Vaakkoi we found a dragonfly nymph shedding its skin to become a young adult dragonfly. Or rather it was my daughter with her keen eyes who spotted what was happening. I'm not sure about the species, though.
