Eggses: the summer of 2008 part 2

These eggs show up as punctuation marks on all sorts of stuff. I'm always glad to see them since they look cool and signify the presence of a good population of Chrysopa oculata, green lacewings. The adults (below) and larvae, which look kind of like those things Khan put into people's ears in Star Trek: the Wrath of Kahn, are predators of aphids, mites and miscellaneous soft bodied critters on your garden plants or crops.
