I’ve taken many thousands of photos of a variety of insects in North Carolina since I moved here and I’d like to do a little something more with them. I am therefore adding a new periodic feature that will make good use of my hoards of photos: Life Stages! These features will briefly cover multiple stages in the life cycle of a species and share some information about it – what it eats, how it develops, etc. These posts will help me learn about the species I come across in my daily life, but my hope is to pass along what I discover to you all so that you can get to know the multiple forms, colors, and ages of insects a little better too.
I hope you’ll enjoy Life Stages and learn alongside me! The first post goes up soon, featuring the iconic life cycle of the monarch butterfly.
