It's been very windy here for the last several days, and some of the butterflies and moths have been getting battered by the winds. I walked past this one a couple of times in our yard before I realized that it wasn't a leaf. I tried gently to get her to climb onto a stick so I could move her from the middle of the grass, but when I nudged her, the poor thing just fell over, and exposed the eggs that were under her.
