Mosquito eggs

Culex quinquefasciatus
Vero Beach FL
Just some eggs from my colony. I am taking some "eye candy" shots for a presentation and thought these looked kind of cool.The rafts stick to one another with via van der Waals forces, I believe. Makes for some pretty patterns. Also note that sometimes females die in the process of ovipostion, especially in a dense colony situation.
