Insect Eggs

Reproduction is part of the ongoing story of November, in this case with fourteen pearly eggs, of a stink bug, on a tuckaroo tree leaf, ready to hatch and begin eating. This is why in November ragged leaves are the look. Plenty of caterpillars and grubs means plenty of visiting insect-eating birds.

The size of the eggs, the size of a glass head on a pin, suggest quite a large caterpillar or larval form.
