Who has visited our garden?

by

I trimmed back the wormwood a few days ago as it was taking over the pathway and the chook house. Later that evening I selected cuttings and stripped the remaining wormwood to dry the leaves.
Something shiny on one of the leaves caught my eye ……. 9 dark grey shiny eggs.

Does anyone have any idea what insect would have laid their eggs on a wormwood plant?

I have saved the leaf in a jar, hoping to see what hatches, but if anyone has any clue as to what insect is attracted too rather then repelled by a wormwood, please let us know.
