Eclosion - Cycloneda sanguinea

Eclosion - Cycloneda sanguinea
Alameda County, California, USA
September 22, 2012
I have several lady-beetle pupae in an outdoor terrarium. When I checked them this morning, one adult had almost finished emerging. At this stage, it was largely stationary, but it occasionally swayed side to side several times in succession, in a movement of very small amplitude. Photo taken at 10:49 a.m.
