Early stages: Eggs are yellow and approximately 1.1 × 0.8 mm (h x w). Females gather together and usually each one places eggs to a total of 50 to 1000 in leaves of the host plant. Mature larvae have a yellow body with black bands and black scoli and head; length is approximately 0.1 cm. Caterpillars are gregarious (Brown, 1981).

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
