I believe they are aphids. S

If they are in your yard,
keep an eye on them - they generally don't move far so you should be able to photograph all the life stages and get a positive ID on an adult.

Watched them for 2 days then they were gone. Guess I'll never know what they were.

Thank you
I stand in that same spot every day and today is the first I've seen them. I will keep an eye on them.
