Eggs on apple branch

In pruning my apple trees, I have come across a couple of small branches with eggs covering them. The eggs look like small brown cucumber seeds, or maybe like flax seeds. They overlap, somewhat like scales on a fish. They are glued very securely onto the branch. The bark underneath comes off with the egg when removed. Thank you for your help.

Katydid eggs? Look it up and report back. If not try to submit pictures.

Thanks, Rhizo, A 10 second search confirms it. They are katydid eggs. Thanks. Ted
