I photographed this image in my garden. This dead moth was bound by web near these eggs like thing. Can you explain ?
We can only speculate on this melodrama, but we have a relatively good idea what happened. This female moth was snared by a spider that fed upon the fluids of the moth, killing it. As it was dying, the moth laid eggs. We will try to determine a family for this moth.
