Really nice series of life-cycle shots!
Thanks for taking the time to rear this moth and document it for us all.

Also, thought I should mention that I think you've got the date on these images wrong... pretty sure you meant to post them for 2009, not 2008.

 
Oops
yes, I had forgotten it was 2009, thanks.
