CLOSED: Shiny gold eggs on underside of clematis leaf???

Tipp City, OH(Zone 5b)

The picture does not show how metallic these little eggs look - any ideas on what they are?

These appear to be bug (Hemiptera/Heteroptera) eggs; possibly in the family Coreidae (leaf-footed bugs) - see for an example.

Well, I sure don't need to protect them then.... I hate squash bugs! They are very destructive!

Thanks so much!!!!!
