Just figured you might not have noticed it happened. We have been really enjoying all the life cycle images you have been posting. Excellent work!

Good Morning and thank you. The moths are beautiful and my 2 favorite are the Sphinx and the Underwing. To see them in flight is amazing but my fascination is where it begins with the cycle of life...Ova! To watch the ova grow, hatch and get the chance to rear these critters makes one realize just how difficult the cycle of life really is. Each larva species I have reared are all so different in they behavior...all I can say is I am hooked and I owe Carl Barrentine a huge thanks for opening up a whole new world to me.
