I had a look at the other picture of the eggs you pointed me to.
Have a look at the following picture.
There are lots of species of Anastatus, and the can be quite difficult to tell apart - so I wouldn't assume that this picture is the same species as yours.
But I still figure that they are not ants.

These are some kind of Hemiptera nymphs that are hatching from their eggs. I only make this comment to point out that the dark, out of focus bug standing on the leaf midrib at the very top of the picture is a parasitoid wasp (Chalcidoidea: Family Eupelmidae - possibly the genus Anastatus) that is checking out the eggs.
