Cherry Blossoms are really starting to take off in Northern Michigan. It won't be long now before the Cherry Pirate Air Force descends on the fruit from these trees. It's a tremendously short season from the initial buds to "Where did all the Cherries go?"

It really wasn't that long ago for us in the N. Hemisphere.

This isn't an artistic exercise. I have a couple of questions. First, I believe the tree may be a maple of some type. It's leaves just started showing up the other day, literally. The maple type isn't the question. I am wondering what the heck all the little red balls are on the surface of every leaf on the tree. Eggs? Disease? A bonus question would be what type of bug is this?

Spoiler alert : I don't know the answer to either question, so feel free to make things up.

Maybe try maple bladder gall mites (Vasates quadripedes). I suspect the larger, later instar insect is unrelated (other than perhaps being a predator) but will leave that for those who know insects.

For a tree ID we'd need more indicative images. It does look oppositely branched and palmately lobed, which is consistent with Acer (maple), but not diagnostic.

An Old Mission Peninsula Roadside Cherry Tree Orchard. ( I see most of the dandelions I planted last year came up)
