neato!
Neato! Excellent capture, Jim. Thanks for sharing these.

WOW
What a great series. By the way, you can post these directly to the wheelbug page by going there first and clicking on add an image, rather than posting to ID Request, since you apparently already know what they are. If you want to move them now, just click on Tag all and then go to wheelbugs and click on move tagged images. What a great addition to the guide. Put some of these right on the LifeCycle section of the info page for Arilus. Hope you like it.

 
Thanks
Now I know how to do it. And, don't need to figure it out, made more difficult today because of an unreliable internet connection :-(
