My larvae is brown!

I caught my queen in June, I believe she is a camponotus. She laid around 5 eggs shortly after I got her. One of her larvae’s appears to be a brown color now, can anyone tell me what it is.

I know the photos aren’t the best quality, I can take better ones later. I have her in a jewelry bead tube, almost like a test tube

The pupae turn brown when they’re near eclosing. Pupa darken as they mature and come closer to an adult ant.
