Awesome series!
Hey, there is a new website devoted to documenting insect life cycles. You should definitely submit this there. Apologies for not having the URL handy....maybe someone else will give it here. Keep up the great work:-)

Perhaps this is the site you mean?

Glad you like it
These are very old film-slides that I re-photographed with my digital point-and-shoot. I already submitted them to the Life Cycle Website.

I agree with Eric, these are great
Beautiful AND informative.
