So they weren't spider's eggs then!!

Postby cybermystic » Sun Sep 14, 2014 11:58 am

Well there's a turn up for the books!! Due to the proximity of a spider web, I thought these were spider eggs on the washing line. Now a few have hatched out a few days later you can see they are in fact Butterfly eggs :) :) How amazing. Butterfly must have mistaken the green washing line for a plant stem. Didn't matter that it was horizontal and not vertical.

Gets even weirder - a genius Professor friend of mine (Pete Dobson) knew immediately what they were - and they're NOT Butterfly eggs (but close):
