Image got seperated
This photo was part of a set of 7 images that I took at the same time and place. Six focused on aphids and ants and one on a syrphid fly. What you refer to as "eggs" are actually aphids.  I took this wide shot to show the ants tending the aphids.  Here is a close-up of one of  the aphids from the set to which this image originally belonged .
Aphid Colony - Genus/Species Possible?
Feel free to frass this image if you don't think it adds any value. Personally, I think this photo showing the ants tending the aphids is usuful information. For now, I've moved it back where it originally belonged and linked it to the other images.

Perhaps the confusion occurred because of the syrphid fly image that showed the fly feeding on the aphids. Hannah Nendick-Mason moved the syrphid image

as noted in her post. Maybe the ants tending the aphids got accidently moved at the same time.  I don't really know.  Hopfully, it's all OK now. Thanks for catching the error.
