Damselfly Nymphs

A small series of photos of damselfly nymphs taken in October and November 2008. The main identifying feature are the three fringe-like gills which form a tail. The nymphs will take about a year to mature.

The photos were taken with the Sigma 105mm F2.8 EX DG macro lens and Canon 430EX flash unit. I used a teleconverter on one shot (with "tc" in the name), and the shot from 29/11 is a stack of two images to improve depth of field.
