Long Tailed Skipper Moth Eggs and Larva

DSCN6031

While out watering today I saw a long tailed skipper moth on one of my green bean plants and thought it odd.  After checking out the plants carefully, which I try to do every day, I found eggs, larva and a whole lot  of chewing going on.

I did a search on the internet and found that the eggs and larva belong to the long tailed skipper month.  I will be checking closer every day now.

I do have to say the eggs are quite interesting.  I found stacked eggs and single eggs.
