^ They are pupae of something. They will emerge into the adult stage soon and then maybe a beeter ID can be given :)

Edit: well they are doing damage! Sucking the very fresh tips. Somewhat beneficial I guess for "tipping" to create bushier growth Edited by upside

^ The first two pics look bizarre, but the others look like they may be lady bug babies. Better pics would help, lol.

That's the best i could get really. they where defiantly not lady bugs i think as they where way to small... all of that was about the size of a few grains of sand

I just thought they looked interesting anyway I don't really expect someone to ID them haha

I got it this time.... Spined Soldier Bug . Podisus maculiventris , a beneficial insect. :) Also known as a stink bug. The nymphs look quite different to the adults.

The eggs remind me of sea urchins.

I forgot there was a thread like this here.

Any idea what kind of fly this is? Was very large. An inch long body at least.
