Subject: Bright pink eggs?

Can the small bright pink bubbles be an egg of some kind. They appeared in my garden overnight. They were found above the soil. They appear to have areflectors tough but soft exterior with bright pink liquid centre. Comparable to a paintball bullet but small in size.
In our opinion, this looks like fungus and not eggs. We found this similar FlickR image and a link to this Slime Mold posting on the Field Guide to the Fungi of New England. This FlickR image identifies the Slime Mold as Lycogales epidendrum. Based on iSpot, this Slime Mold, also called Pink Bubblegum Fungus, is found in South Africa.
Thank you so much for your help and clarification.
What an excellent response time and service.
