What are these?

And these? I trust this one more than the first. Should I?

They are on a pluot. Actually this pluot had an aphid problem until I put tanglefoot on and stopped the ants from farming them. It's a 4 in 1 tree and 3 varieties have nice healthy leaves but the 4th (Dapple Dandy) not so much as you can see.
