Eggs and, I think, newly-hatched thing. Is it a scale insect?

Hi, found this batch of eggs on a geranium leaf in the garden. They all seem to have hatched, and there is a strange looking creature next to them, right size and location to have hatched from one of them. The eggs themselves are rather beautiful, and I'm curious (and baffled) as to the ID of their 'owner'.

Because the creature is flattish and roundish I wondered about scale insects, but can't find anything defninite, most images relate to fluffy pest species.

 

Thanks in advance!
