Just caught this shieldbug nymph moulting from 4th to final instar. Missed the beginning unfortunately... thought better to do a collage as easier to see the changes like that.
Starts top left to right, then middle left to right, then bottom left to right! :-)
Was lucky as just after he'd finished, the heavens opened!!

Thank you very much Cheryl! You're very kind!

I used an online photo combiner ( makephotogallery.net ) to turn nine pics into one.
Have now removed my comment about extra pics in comments being useless as that was about Flickr, not here!
