Location: Okauchee Lake west shore,
Waukesha County

This female was reared from an egg found on October 15. I observed the oviposition, and brought the egg to my home. The egg hatched in 5 days. The larva was kept indoors and fed Kale. It eclosed Nov. 2 and emerged Nov 7. completing its cycle in 23 days! Before releasing it to the fortunes of fate, I photographed it, hoping for the best.
