Rudbeckia Seed Aphids

 I realized earlier that there were aphids on the developing seeds to the Black Eyed Susans I have in the front yard.

 They're also under the flower somewhat. They used to only be here but have since moved up to the seeds and within spent florets.

What's odd is that the ants are tending them and this is boarder line an in-between with tending aphids and nectar thieves. It's odd finding aphids filling this roll.
