Very nice. Very Happy

I have seen this type of dust and fiber merging before. I am not sure when and why it happens and for a live insect it might not be permanent.

Of course wonderful photo! The things you see could be deformations of the cuticula originated during merging from the egg 8the chitin is delicate in this moment) or even a defect in the formation of the cuticule of the eye that has a very complex structure since it has to convey light to the photoreceptor

The first mystery object is likely some sort of sensory structure. The form resembles a campaniform sensilla: https://genent.cals.ncsu.edu/bug-bytes/senses/mechanoreceptors/ which are mechanorececeptors for detecting strain on the cuticle.

The 2nd mystery object might be a piece of crud.. :\
