Witnessed the birth of aliens!
Gross - but well done. What is it?
Good close-up. It does look like an extraterrestrial thing.
Nicely isolated against a simple background. Did you have to wait long for them to emerge?
Nice one! What are they?
I could tell you what they are but let's wait & see if anyone knows.
They started to hatch 4 days after I spotted the eggs. I didn't have to sit in front of the eggs and wait, but frequent visits were enough to capture some good moments.
Wood lice before the shells harden and expand ??
Good subject and details, but maybe it's just me, i can't look at it that long. umm...
Good guess, but wrong, I'm afraid.
Eggs are about 1mm tall, if this helps.
This is very good and very freaky image. Rather hair rasing stuff. Could they be slaters.
Brilliant macro! Ladybird larvae? Good shot.
Well done, Karen! Yes, they are ladybird larvae hatching.
and thanks for your comments!
Nice shot & such an interesting subject!
quite interesting.with your image and my image of the ladybug and nymph we'd have the entire lifecycle.:0) good detail.
I just saw your image. Very interesting too. I have 'Ladybird Diary' gallery at PBase (link from my profile page - Wildlife/Insects/) in which I monitored the whole development. You might find it interesting.
Thanks for pointing to your 'Diary', Gemm. Seems they a bit confused by the metal post - unless they've learned to chew iron!
Off to inspect all and sundry metal posts around here!
Yeah, I thought it was a very strange place to lay eggs, but almost all the eggs hatched and they've all wandered off, so I'm sure they knew what they were doing.
Fantastic macro work. I was thinking woodlice until I read on.
Nice to see your macro shots again.Looking forward to more
