Harlequin Eggses

I found this batch of harlequin bug eggs, Murgantia histrionica, on a dried flower umbel of Ammi majus, the other (prettier than Daucus carota in my opinion) Queen Anne's lace. The bugs are active (feeding, mating) in the sweet alyssum ground cover below and climb up stalks of things growing among the lower flowers to lay their eggs.
