It's the adult (imago) emerging and drying after emerging from the larval stage. What you can see the old exoskeleton of the nymp that the adult has just burst out of :thumbup1:

Easy mistake to make as that's what it looks like :biggrin:. They are forocious hunters and will attack other insects that are almost their own size.

 

I love 'em!
