Hello Markus. Although this species (see suggestion) is known to engage in brooding behavior, the associated mission instructions state "Both the parent(s) and young should be featured together in some of the photos. It is not enough to include a species that is known to engage in this activity, your spotting also NEEDS TO SHOW IT". Your spotting shows nymphs after the parent has departed and stopped any care for the young. So I'm removing that mission. Thanks for your interest and keep up your fine spotting!
