I apologize for my ignorance but I'm new to vegetable gardening and this site. I have found several translucent yellow eggs with hard shells stuck to several of my tomato and yellow pepper plant leaves. Can anyone please help identifying them? These are found singly on the leaves.
Thank you in advance! 👍👍👍

I'm 99% sure that's a hornworm egg
