Nice work, we need more great detective stories
such as this. We would suggest you cut down the number of images of this guy to a half dozen of the best ones and move the rest to frass. You should be able to tell the story without all the duplication of images, but it might be painful! :)

yeah, I was thinking there were too many unnecessary images. I have cut it down to 6 : )

Nice work!
I suggest you also edit the titles to include either dates, or perhaps "day one" "day 3" etc., so all images don't have to be opened to get the story (titles are visible when you run the cursor over thumbnails). See here for an example of how it works.

i was thinking of it but then thought it might be misleading being that putting the day number there might make people think that thats how old the nymph is.

Glad this one matured pre-vacation.
