Green crystal clear eggs

Gautier, MS

This year my new Nicotiana plants have become a food source for moths and hopefully butterflies.

I would love to know if anyone can ID this tiny green egg on my Nicotiana leaves. I do hope that's a butterfly not moth. I eggs I saw on these leaves before were whitish cream color. The caterpillars lately have not only eaten the leaves but are going for the buds and flowers too.

I could possibly be tobacco horn worm; a moth.

Thanks for the ID. It wouldn't be too bad if they just not chew off the flowers and buds.
