A large number of these pinhead sized bugs hatched on my bonsai maple buds and leaves on a warm February week.
Signature: Any

Maple Aphid, we believe

This is an Aphid, and based on our research and information contained on Influential Points and BugGuide, we suspect this is a Maple Aphid, Periphyllus testudinaceus, a species native to Europe. 

Thanks Daniel,
This is great information and very interesting.
