Has anyone else seen nymphs shortly after the shed their exoskeleton and started a new instar?

I like the blog WiFly, as to your question no I have not yet witnessed a nymph in this stage. The closest thing that was pretty neat was watching brown drakes emerging and shedding there shuck, it was very interesting to watch in person.
