Can't stop at 8. The more mature the tank, the more berried is my thinking. Next year you won't bother counting.

I'll have to dig out the extension tubes for my DSLR to try to get some better photos.

Ooooh. The first larva has made an appearance! Hopefully there will be a whole cloud of them soon.

Still there? Try to save it in a net or similar.

How interesting. This petrified wood is the popular mommy hangout. There are 6 berried girls hanging out.
