Whose Eggs are These?
The other day, while on my morning walkabout, I noticed these strange little eggs on the stem of my Pennisetum spatheolatum. I can't figure out for sure what type of eggs they are. There was a ladybug perched on the blossom at the end of the stem...but that could be a coincidence. I did a Google search and most of the photos show ladybug eggs being a sort of yellowish-orange and are laid in sheets of a few dozen on the underside of leaves, not circling stems like this, and not in this quantity! Does anybody know what type of eggs these are...just curious.
I checked them again today, just to see if I could get a better pic, and the eggs have actually turned blue...how weird!
