Hi Sandra,kept me guessing where it was going to pupate,2 30 int morning when it finally picked its spot ! just used the room light adjusting the white balance,set it up and lit the blue touch paper and retired ! think its over 3 hours into not far off 4 mins roughly,trouble is you just hope it all works,i missed tuther 2,same ,middle of night !!

That's brilliant! Well done to Brian. I got a Sallow Kitten larva to do that
but it happened when I was in bed and I missed it. I waited for it to emerge in
spring, but it over-wintered twice and emerged 18 months later - so don't let
Brian chuck it away if it doesn't emerge!!
