I think they are photogenic enough :P
Took some more pictures just now, was hoping to get the 3 females laid next to each other blending into the leaves, but they just wanted to sit on top, managed to get a threat display though.

Think the females are 5th or 6th instar now. Prepare for a massive photo dump now, been taking loads of photo's since all the females are the same instar now. But due to work and flickr being BS now i didnt get round to uploading them untill now. Took all 3 of them at one point up the road to the local resivoir, was hoping i was get some natural scenery and pretend i was in a rainforest taking the shots :roll: Put all 3 of them in a sunny spot on a tree which was swarming with flies, they had themselves a feeding frenzy :) One female went crazy when i opened her lid though flipped backwards try to squeeze past a twig and kinked herself in the middle, although its pumped out now thankfully.
