Six images of diamondback moth during its different life stages on a green background. The first drawing is an adult diamondback moth with its wings outstretched. The second is a circular cutout showing eggs along a leaf being. The third is a small green larva.

The final images are the adults again - one has its wings folded in, and the other has them outstretched.
