White Earwig

I don't know if I've ever posted a picture of an earwig on here before. I know I've tried to take pictures of them many times, but the earwigs, being the under-stuff dwellers that they are, are always too fast for me as they scurry for cover if they're exposed  This one stood still for a moment. Perhaps because she had just molted and was still a little fragile.

I didn't collect her. I just let her go.  Within a few hours, her skin will have turned dark brown, like other earwigs.

Coincidently, one of my favorite Flickr bug sets, Urtica's bug of the day, featured the cutest earwig ever.
