  1. What a cool series! You are just amazing! I bet you put a lot of hard work into this! Posted one year ago
    1. Hi Lisa (and thanks :o) This series was not too bad. My friend Jeanette had them in her garden and I had opportunity to take some shots on several occasions while visiting. No need to feed and pamper the little ones for weeks on end and never too many shots, so sorting through it all wasn't quite as daunting as with some of the other series of eggs/larvae of other species that I took home and cared for to document a development cycle (many still awaiting "work"). This only took a couple of hours (not counting the time spent shooting the images).
      Cheers, Arp
