Meet Jeff

To be honest I don't have a clue as to what Jeff is. His size is about 7-8mm. His body looks similar to a woodlouse. Also there's these white 'feet' poking out the top. He wasn't moving when I studied him and has been on the same leaf in the same spot for a week now. This leads me to think it might be an egg of some description. There's more of his species on other leaves in the immediate surroundings.

Have to keep a closer eye on them now :)

I went back to where Jeff and Co are. After a bit more searching I found some of his brothers and sisters has hatched.
