  1. Impressive ID-ing, Gary! Posted 11 days ago
    1. Wish I knew the fungus though as it was what I was attempting to photo. Hoping to see more of this shiny springtail and get closer views. These springtails are tiny! I was looking at some close-ups on a person's fingertip and they are about as wide as two of the fingerprint ridges. Posted 11 days ago, modified 11 days ago
