Here, a group of Nevada buck Moth (Hemileuca nevadensis) larvae molt their skins as a group. Notice that the larvae are of different sizes (although not of different ages) and still molt together at roughly the same time. The exact synchronization mechanism is still a mystery. The soundtrack is "Shake Well" from the "TimeShift" CD by Technician (yours truly), album and single track available on iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/timeshift/id416810514 full artist discography and CDs available at HTTP://technician.jcmdi.com More music, photos and lepidoptera documentaries at JCMDI.COM.
