A Moult

Or is it molt?  When I took this photo, I was conscious that it was framed by what I called "a new kind of adult," one on the far left and one on the right, with many juveniles in between.  What I did not notice until I looked at it on my monitor was an emerging adult in the top center.  Click on the photo for an enlargement and you'll see.  If I only had a couple of days to spare, I could have stood there and watched it happen.  I can't afford a time-lapse photography setup.
