Looks typical of a moth/butterfly egg pattern...what kind, I can't say.

If you've seen a certain kind of moth/butterfly around your plants at the time you discovered the eggs it might help you narrow your ID.

thanks, interesting that they were on synthetic string, suppose we could have just watched them to see what developed but first instinct was to just get them the heck out of there, thanks again
