Larval Emergence - Epophthalmia vittigera (Female)

I have been breeding Epophthalmia vittigera larvae. One of the larvae was out of the water around midnight. I knew that it would be emerging that night, but I was too tired to stay up the night to record the larval emergence. So, I snapped a few shots on the newly emerged adult the very next day morning. It is a female of Epophthalmia vittigera.
