A new dragonfly emerges from its exuvia (former body, hardened):
This was just before it took off into the elderberry tree above the pond where it no doubt spent the last few years as a nymph swimming around. Days later we had the honor of helping a friend pass into the next realm, and also learned that the dragonfly was his totem. And dragonflies are also guardians of the portals to the other worlds.
