An earwig (?) guarding baby earwigs?
It means they have recently molted/hatched, and have yet to develop a hard exoskeleton.
Just one question… why are the babies white?
Great spotting batex and you managed to get the irridescence of the earwig in too...just don't think I want one in my ear though ha :-)
Awesome! You have indeed seen the brooding behavior of earwigs. The adult is most likely a female. This would be a wonderful addition to the "Brooding behavior in insects and other invertebrates" mission:http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8176...
