Woolly Apple Aphids

I found this large mass of Wooly Apple Aphids on a branch at Warriors Path State Park. Ants would stroke them with their antennae to encourage the ants to produce honeydew. These aphids produce a white, waxy substance to protect themselves from predators. Often aphids that congregate in masses, such as these, will move in unison.
