globular springtail

Bug of the Day

Ok, definitely not the best shots, but check out these teeny adorable springtails I found popping around on the surface of a puddle in my back yard! Definitely some globulars and some elongates in there.

Update: Thanks to  Frans Janssens at www.collembola.org for identifying the elongate springtails as belonging to the Isotomidae family, and the globular springtails as belonging to the Katiannidae family.
