Lacewing eggs

Pat Lynch spotted these eggs working on the Planting Project on the East Terrace. Lacewings are beneficial insects in the family Chrysopidae. Many of them eat aphids; indeed they often lay these oool stalked eggs near aphid infestations. 'I ought to have included something for scale beyond the coarse weave of the backgrund fabric. I'd guess the eggs were about 3-4mm apart.
