Photos are of different stages of development of the ovum and larva.
Ovum: 5 days
Larva: 50 days
Pupa: 15 days
Hibernation: Usually hibernates as last instar, but this one went straight through using a lot of coaxing with light 24x7, temperatures close to 75 degrees, spritzing and always fresh host plants.
Larval Host Plant: Yellow Sweet Clover until no more fresh could be found. The larva was then fed on Alfalfa leaves.
