The Southern Great White butterfly eggs, all 43 of them, hatched today. I did my best with artificial light (as it was overcast all morning) to try and photograph the process. It took five full days from oviposition by the mother to hatching of the larvae. The eggs were deposited on garden turnip, Brassica rapa. EPerry
