One of the things that I find fascinating about insects is their machine like symmetry and precision.
We grow some (quite) small cherry tomatoes in the back yard which are about 2cm in diameter. The other day when bringing some in from the garden my wife noticed some insect had carefully laid some beautiful silver seeds on one of the tomatoes.
it was almost like someone had decorated the tomato with small silver dots.
Looking closer you can see they are actually a thin shelled egg...
and here you can even see the perforations around the tops of the egg where the grub will break out.
can't wait to see what comes out
