Just by luck I noticed this tiny grasshopper nymph (schistocerca nitens) molting. The part of the process photographed, which had started before I began watching, took about 10 minutes.

I never get tired of watching this process, and always marvel at the detail of the exoskeleton, down to the last toenail. (or grasshopper equivalent thereof)
