I wasn't quite sure what these hatchlings were, on the underside of my beaked hazelnut. Google lens pegged them as aphids, but closer delving steered us to the spined soldier bug, a kind of stink bug. There appear to be eggs, little round ladybug-like creatures, and spidery looking creatures as well, each being a different stage of development.

I love being a nature sleuth-nerd - it's so satisfying!
