Late summer pear look see

I was doing a walk about the orchard doing some late summer clean up pruning of my pear espaliers getting rid of some wild upright growth.

On my MORENTTINNI pear I found that some of the upeight shoots had these little hairlike growths ( see photo below ).

I was wondering if these are precursors for flower buds or more vegetative growth.

Any help appreciated.



Gently touch and the insect inside should move. Woolly Aphid.
