Hi everyone...I found these eggs on my Honeysuckle this morning, can anyone ID them for me please.
I had something very similar in my sunroom two years ago and I think they were from some kind of moth but I'm just guessing. They were perfect pistachio green and I thought it was paint!!
My best guess is that there's a caterpillar type beastie in those eggs. No idea which one but butterflies tend to lay in clusters like that.
I'd go with butterfly/moth eggs too
Thanks everyone...I'll keep an eye on them and see what emerges.
I think the Queen might have had something to do with them.
Took a minute for the penny to drop LG.

There are many moths that lay eggs on Honeysuckle, and also the White Admiral Butterfly (if you are very lucky!), but it is not easy to identify which from your photo. Perhaps when they hatch it might be easier to identify them.
Thanks Mr J...they do look very similar, so maybe Shield Bug eggs
