Hairy shieldbug nymphs hatching sequence

Hairy shieldbug nymphs hatching sequence
When I left for my walk, I went to see whether the eggs I found on Friday had hatched yet. They hadn't...

On my return, I thought I'd have another look, and discovered that one nymph was nearly out, a second one was half way out, and a third one was just breaking the egg.

So, I decided to watch the 3rd one emerge!! Have uploaded just 4 shots from the sequence (many are blurred as these really are tiny and on the limits of my camera really).

Was an absolute thrill for me to witness this as although I'd seen recently hatched young, I'd never caught them in the process of hatching before!! :-)
