As I hiked a trail in southern Taiwan, I discovered a row of bright yellow insect eggs on silvergrass that had been cut. At first, I couldn’t tell the species of insect. So, I moved them to a secluded spot nearby. After a few days, I returned to discover that the eggs were much darker, and I could see the outlines and colors of the insects inside. It seemed that they were quickly maturing and ready to hatch. So, I came again the next day and saw that from those eggs were hatching the larvae of some kind of moth. I felt fortunate to have been able to record their birth.
