Came across some moth eggs on a blade of grass. They look about ready to hatch, the bristles on the caterpillars inside are clear to see as they move around.

Thanks for the remarks! I went down just about an hour after posting these to remove the slide holding the eggs fromn the microscope and they were all hatching out and crawling around the stage. Here is what the newly hatched caterpillars look like...

The eggs were illuminated using fiber optic illuminators and the light was directed through a translucent cylinder or "sleeve" made from a cut up yogurt container.

Now your next challenge is to raise these worms to adulthood and photograph them too!
