Can anyone tell me what this is??
This is my first time visiting this forum in quite a while. I am hoping that someone can id this cocoon/egg sac or whatever it is for me (I posted at the insect forum also, but this forum looks a little more active). These two fuzzy looking balls were on a very tiny limb/branch on an oak tree. They look like someone took two little pom poms and stuck them on the limb. I didn't touch them, so I don't know if they are hard or soft. The reddish dots are pretty much evenly spaced on the balls.
I live in the piedmont area of North Carolina in case that helps.
