A Female Hatches

Great news, A female moth had hatched this morning. She's even bigger than the male and a beautiful specimen.
Unfortunately, the male had died already! Perhaps the hot weather meant a shorter life.
Another caterpillar spun its cocoon the day after this female, So keep your fingers crossed that it is a mate for her.
