Photo to share, if that’s okay.
Hello, my mom saw this Royal Walnut Moth on the side of our house in southeast Pennsylvania. Your website is awesome, it was my only way to ID the moth–even enature.com (my other-animal-ID-place) didn’t have it! Anyway, it laid eggs and a few had fallen to the ground, seemingly unharmed, so I’m going to see if they hatch, with my 4-year-old sister. Just thought I’d share my photos, in case you wanted to use them. If not, that’s fine too! Thanks again!

Hi Sylvia,
Your photo is lovely, but what we really like about it is the eggs. Insect eggs are often very difficult to identify and we get numerous requests. We will be posting your image and letter on several of our pages, including the egg page. If the eggs hatch, and you have the opportunity to see a grown caterpillar, they are very impressive. We get photos of the Hickory Horned Devils in September and we have many photos of them on our numerous caterpillar pages.
