Default Oil Leak?

I was starting the process of changing some filter this afternoon and noticed some substantial leaks of sorts. Does anyone have any ideas of likely culprits from these pictures?

B5.5 TDI

Substantial? I didn’t see anything to worry about.
There are 10 kinds of people in the world: those that understand binary and those that don't.

I'd just keep an eye on the oil level. Looks like it might be dripping from the EGR valve. But don't think I'd be overly worried based on the photos. Good luck figuring it out!

My BHW leaks WAY more oil than that (like several drips on the driveway each day) and the oil level hardly even moves. I wouldn't be concerned about it.
