I'm trying to identify these eggs found in my garden.
I've noticed Death's-head hawkmoth flying in my garden for a while, can it be it?

thanks,
Tomer

Where do you live? They look like squash bug eggs.

Those sure are pretty golden eggs and laid so perfectly!

Tomer is from the Florida Panhandle?
Apparently Leaf footed bugs lay golden eggs: http://pbase.com/image/80555051

The Death's-head Hawkmoth is found in Europe according to wiki. It also says the eggs are typically laid singularly and are blue-grey or green in color: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acherontia_atropos#/media/File...
