Hello fellow trekkers. Not too much technique or art here, just plain curiosity.
Once in a while we all encounter something in nature we have no idea about and this is one of these occasions.
What you see was stuck outside of my window for a quite a few days. It is about 2cm wide. I have absolutely no idea what it could be and I hope to get your help!!

Interesting photo Shir! Probably these are the eggs of a Lacewing.
The Lacewings lay clusters of eggs on threadlike stalks to prevent cannibalism among newly hatched larvae.

Most interesting apparition on your window, I never would have guessed that these were eggs of Lacewings. Good to know and a most original posting. The picture looks like some abstract artwork!
Thanks too for your WS on my orchid. It looks good. (I think you made welcome corrections on it, I'm not so good in working on pictures)
Thanks and have a nice day
