More information and a picture would help greatly. By nearly transparent do you mean bubbly or foamy, white, etc. Does it look like spittle? Is there any damage to the plant? Could it be eggs?

I found this on a Q&A for okra at the following link

http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/ar...

Q. Small drops of liquid are oozing from various areas of the leaves and stems of my okra plants. What causes this?

A. You are describing natural secretions from the okra plant through glands on the leaves and stems. This is a natural process of the plant and causes no damage.

Does this sound like what is happening? perhaps you can post some pictures?
