Great series!
The more recent pots are larger than the older ones. I wonder whether she lays male eggs in the older pots and females in the newer. Bees are known to do that.

The pots were all about the same size. The angle of the photo makes the lower (and older) ones look smaller.

It is a matter of perspective, then. Thanks for clarifying this.
