Found on my sweat peas. Eggs of some kind? Any ideas? Friend or foe? The were not attached and feel very hard. Beautiful structure. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

They are shield bug eggs apparently, but as to which species it could be one of many. the green shield bug is the most common in the uk. Daughter has found these a lot last year. they are usually slightly sticky so adhere to the leaves.

so we are now less in the dark :o)
