I have seen many large moths here, very pretty. Male or female? Very docile.

laying eggs
This bug has been sitting on my front porch for days now and this morning, it has laid eggs all over the place. It is very gross - but I don't want to harm this thing but it is getting really gross. What do I do?

male
According to Butterflies and Moths of North America's website, the females have more yellow/gold and the males have more purple. I just found one this morning on my front porch! Wow.
