Until I got home I thought these white spots were part of the color pattern.

Moved from Frass. Just until we get something better to replace it for the article.

I was worried about a broken link.

It wouldn't be a big deal
The thumbnail would just disappear. It happens all the time. People get an ID with a thumbnail, then years later the thumb image gets frassed, some comment somewhere loses a thumb, no big deal.
I saved it because it was the only one in the family, so far.

Moved from ID Request.

so none of these
are needed for the tachinid egg photos article they are linked to?

Agree with Largus nymph.
The hitchhikers might be tachinid eggs.

egg photos
Unfortunately, what I have posted is the full sized photos, which I and the editors can see, if I recall correctly how this is done, any Egg ID would be made from them as they are the original pixels

Should I post other photos to the page you linked to?

I'll look to see if I have better photos of just the eggs, that aren't duplicates of these.

That page is an article.
You could leave a comment and see if Beatriz (1) agrees that they're tachinid eggs and (2) feels that your images should be referenced there.

Tachinid Eggs
I'll have to skip my posting order and go see about flies I've photoed in this area. I don't know them well but I think I've a good number of tachinid.
