Some eggs that hatched

Mystery eggs
A few days ago, I noticed this strange-looking cluster of eggs on a leaf of my Indian hawthorne plant. The whole cluster was about the diameter of a lentil. I picked the leaf, put it in a jar and brought it into my kitchen, which is where all my high priority bug things end up, of course!


First thing this morning when I checked them, I saw they had hatched.

Eeee! Lots of tiny little assassin bugs! The white ones are the most recently hatched. The darker ones hatched first.

After the photo shoot, I released them back into the bushes.
