Egg identification

I’m sure these pictures aren’t the best but I’ve noticed some eggs on the glass and underside of leaves (different types) that I was wondering if someone could identify. The first I’m pretty sure is nerite eggs. I’ve seen them before and am familiar with how they look. The only thing that makes me wonder is that I haven’t seen any new nerite eggs since my second nerite died some time ago. (Like a couple years; this snail is ancient by snail standards ) I assumed the one in there was male since there have been no eggs in so long. Is it possible my nerite is suddenly laying eggs after probably 2 years of not doing so?

The second batch are orange colored in person and tiny; about the size of the eggs my cherries carry but these are adhered to the underside of a leaf and not fungusing. Any clue given what is in my tank (listed on my profile)?
