Lacewing eggs


Small white eggs suspended off individual tethers.


Found underneath an outdoor table. Usually found on the underside of leaves or branches.


The individual threads ensure the newly hatched young don't eat each other. Apparently you can buy the eggs as a form of biological pest control - the young are also known as 'aphid lions'. I must have a fairly healthy garden :)
