Small Orange Ball?

Small Orange Ball?
Brighton, Northumberland, Ontario, Canada
June 21, 2008
Size: -1/4 inch
While digging in the garden we unearthed a small piece of wood with a small grove. In the grove was this perfectly round orange ball. While trying to decide what it was it fell out of the grove and on the backside was a small wormlike creature. Anyone have any idea on what it could be. Unfortunately I forgot about it until the next day by which time it had dried in the sun. Ideas appreciated.

Moved from Unidentified Bee Nests and Larvae. I'm deleting that section because this pollen mass was the only thing in it. There is now a general unidentified bee/wasp nest page here.

Hi John and Jane,

Found this article on the web with pictures:

Although I can't figure whether my pic is of the egg or larva.
