Red Velvet Mite - Trombidium sp. I know that I just shared one of these earlier this week, but I can&#039;t help but share this one too. They are such cool creatures...and fast! I like to sit on the forest floor in spring and watch them -- there are so many! And, they will crawl on me as if I am just part of the landscape.<br />
