The group gathered around, more photos were taken, ideas tossed out. The pattern is so regular - really quite beautiful.

Fred turned it over to get a closer look at the underside. We were pretty convinced that these are eggs of some kind. (Although Lyn was sticking to her theory of aliens : -)

And again Fred for the win. He writes:
I knew I had seen those eggs pictured somewhere and sure enough I found them in the Kaufman Field Guide to Insects of NA (Eric Eaton/Kenn Kaufman). They are the eggs of the one of the angle-winded katydids, most probably the Greater Angle-wing (Microcentrum rhombifolium). Anne’s blog of December 23 had a couple of Marty’s photos of the adult we found just above the dam (not too far from these eggs).
And now you know - Katydid it!
