Enjoy these photos of a white cockroach, taken by Ester Beatriz. From the Albuquerque Tribune:

Every once in a while, you might find a white cockroach. If you do, you're seeing one in transition. As cockroaches mature, they discard their skin and grow a new, bigger skin. In the nearly 12 hours it takes to shed and then grow new skin, the roach is white.
