Teneral - Leptoglossus zonatus

Teneral - Leptoglossus zonatus
Victoria, Victoria County, Texas, USA
July 5, 2014
On tomato.
When I found it, it was molting. But when I take the camera outside I need to wait a while for the camera to adapt to outside temperature. (Due to the strong condensation.) (Usually I need more of 15 min or sometimes even a half hour if no more).
In the photo which show the teneral and the exuvium together it was just finish the molt and it start to move to hide, perhaps disturbed by my presence.
The last photo show the same specimen, next day, with characteristic colors of imago stage.
