Virginian Tiger Moth Laying Eggs

This is the third Virginian Tiger Moth I have seen recently. When I took this picture it seemed like there was some sort of white smudging underneath the moth. After downloading the photos I could see that there were actually a whole lot of eggs there. I enlarged a portion of the picture to show the light green ball shaped egg. If you double-click on the photo you will get a larger view of it. The eggs which are successfully hatched will develop into Yellow Bear Caterpillars.
