Description

Since the shepherd's purse started coming up along my fence line a few weeks ago, I've been noticing teeny, tiny, reddish flecks of something on the leaves. For the longest time I thought they were just tiny pieces of lint or something, though I couldn't figure out where such lint might be coming from.

While editing the photos in https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/155955427, I noticed the same fleck in the last picture, and upon zooming in I realized that it wasn't lint at all, but some kind of insect.

I went out and took some pictures. This is the best one I got. The picture was taken with a 20x hand lens and my phone was set to 2x digital zoom.

This chap was very little and quite a distance from water...and there was a second of the same size right there also. Could they have emerged from eggs in a nest nearby, or hibernated together?
