Feast close-up

When I posted the 'feast' picture the other day I said I might try to get a picture much closer up. Here it is.

A guess based on the earlier picture was - Aphids.

The ones on this poppy seedhead though seem to be an assortment of different-sized creatures, almost like something from Star Wars.

Almost all of those are aphids. I don't know what that white thing near the top is. I can't see any prdators. Predators usually become obvious 1-2 weeks after you first notice an aphid infestation.
