Paeony buds

The paeonies are in bud - and today playing host to several varieties of insects.  (Not) using their entomological names:
  • ants
  • very very small flies
  • small flies
  • ladybird
  • "normal" flies
  • large flying things
  • wasps
  • push me - pull you
I wonder if the buds are exuding something sweet? Nothing visible. Maybe a precursor of the gorgeous scent of the (future) flowers - assuming these freeloaders aren't causing damage.
