Awhile back, I showed you the life stages of the silkworm moth. I missed one stage, however, so here they are:



Silkworm moth eggs.

In case you are wondering, the female moth in the top photograph laid her eggs on a paper towel. The female in the bottom photograph laid on a cardboard egg carton.


To celebrate my new banner, I thought I'd bring you a ladybug from the archives.


This is the twelve-spotted lady beetle, Coleomegilla maculata.

Do you think the banner is too busy?
