Very nice captures!

I see that your egg stack comes complete with parasitic wasp. :D

Thank you, Rick and Lou!

Rick- where there are eggs, there's bound to be a wasp. I'm sure there is really a wasp for every sized egg out there

Actually there is a wasp (or two or three) for nearly every species of egg out there!

Amazing. I venture only that the egg stack seems characteristic of some plant feeding Hemipterans.
