A lovely clear image of a female Large Red Damselfly. I don't think the exuviae and the damselfly are directly related. The damselfly has been emerged for several days I would say as it has coloured up considerably, not mature but certainly on the way to being so.

Thanks for your help, there were a lot of them about the pond, some very pale in colour, i even had one on my jumper.
