Identification help needed

I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what all these tiny bugs are that are climbing all over the stems of my sambucus nigra shrub?

Aphids

They look aphid like to me, suggest you create an iSpot entry for them (use the Add an observation button at the top right of the screen) so more people can take a look.
