It's always interesting to see what turns up on my balcony garden. Gulf fritlliaries laid eggs on my passion vine last season, and I found these this morning on the sweetpeas. Nature is wonderful-- just look at that hexagon!

It will be hard to kill anything once you realize that they too have a thirst to be alive (specially when I see how a spider is going crazy try to escape, when I scoop it up to throw it outdoors, you can see how almost human like their action are)
Of course , insects on orchids are tough on my buddhist conscience.
