Sometimes you can just be lucky!
A month ago I walked out the front door to find a bush cricket or katydid(Caedicia simplex) that had just completed moulting. I took many photographs, downloaded these and then went back to take some more...
When I returned a third time the bush cricket was just finishing a meal - its recently shed exoskeleton.

A few weeks later I found flat shield bug that had also moulted (it didn't seem interested in eating its exoskeleton)

and yesterday the exoskeleton of a spider.
