In the above photos, the individual hanging upside-down at the far left is an adult, one of two color patterns the adults around here exhibit. The one to its immediate right is a juvenile, probably the fifth instar. Note the stripes are perpendicular to the lengthwise body. The slightly larger ones with lengthwise red and white stripes are the other adult pattern.
