we also like your life cycle.

we really like your pics but we have one question why are they all the same?

Cool life cycle diagram! I'm no expert but I agree with your ID.


Sniffly may not be an expert on these guys, but both of you are right! Great identification by all. Keep up the great work!

And, awesome life cycle diagram, as sniffly said too! (I guess I agree with her on lots of things!) :-)
