Cabbage White butterfly eggs (Pieris brassicae)
Cabbage White butterfly eggs (Pieris brassicae)
There are 55 eggs in this group on the underside of a nasturtium leaf in my garden. This cluster is only about 5mm across and a macro lens is required to see details on the eggs. The yellow sculpted egg shells have breathing pores that allow air flow to the developing embryo. The eggs will hatch after about 10 days when the caterpillars will feed on the leaves.
