It’s a Mystery

A few weeks ago I noticed a white shape on a pergola post. It was about 1″ or 2.5 cms long and shaped like an upturned boat. Looking closer I could see that it was actually clear with white spots on it and it felt like jelly when I touched it.

I had no idea what it was so took photos whenever anything seemed different.

You can see the progression in the slideshow, it was possibly 2-3 weeks from the first to the last..

The grooves on the post are 1mm apart so you can see that the nymphs are tiny.

I’d love to know what the insects are.

I’m a sister, wife, mother, grandmother, auntie and friend. I prefer to be outside and am interested in photography, nature and different cultures. I believe everything on this earth has a right to be here but some things and some people would be happiest if their space was far away from mine. (Flies and biting bugs take note!) I don’t like housework and think dust is Nature’s way of saying, “This is my space, I was here first.”
