Here is another of the mysterious black & red things cut open. The eggs(?) that are stuck around the edge where I cut the thing open are stuck on a squishy wet substance that is exposed only because I cut into it.

This was attached to an apple tree & secreting a liquid that ants were eating/drinking.
Here is a photo of the ants drinking and here is another photo.
