Jimmy,

Grasshopper eggs are generally not seen on plant bur rather near the ground. Eggs of insects are fairly hard to identify but the following web sites offer some insect photos.

I am not aware of a site for photos of eggs but a Google Image search might help.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
