Eggs and larvae id

Please can anyone ID these? I deadheaded the rose by mistake and these were on the underside of the leaf. I’ve got the rose in a vase but don’t want to trim off the leaf until I know what these little critters are. I’ve got ladybird larvae in the roses but these don’t look the same? Thanks

    Difficult to tell, possibly a type of shield beetle?

    Baby shield bugs.

    Sap suckers but not in the armageddon style.

    Love Shield Bugs ... fascinating creatures.  So many types and so many stages in their lives.

    Oh thank you both that’s good to know. I don’t mind shield bugs so the leaf will now go back to the garden.
