Nice shot Ivan. Congratulations on the SOTD. It would be nice to know something about where you found them (habitat).

Congratulations Ivan, your pentatomid eggs are our Spotting of the Day:

"Chance is that you were looking for eggs today? Were they as nice as these though? These pentatomid eggs are our Spotting of the Day! Eggs of stinkbugs (family Pentatomidae) are recognized by their barrel shape and by ornamentation on their chorionic surface (the outer shell of the egg). These can provide criteria for genera and species identification. These eggs are always oviposited in clusters as seen here".

Most probably Pentatomidae, Stink Bug Eggs. Identical to Palomena prasina eggs, but this would be a little bit cheeky to take this as a safe ID ;-)...

Try to look for adults in their surrounding! Or you check your other pictures of the same day and nearby for some adults and check the names and eggs.
Other candidate would be Halyomorpha halys, an intruder from Asia, which also looks identical.

So it is probably not possible to get a safe ID from only these pictures. Check the range for both.
The ID I suggest is the closest we safely can get, although it is only the family.
