Ah yes, agree Britsnana. From the species represented in bugguide looks like D. andromeda, to me.

Yes, it is on a blade of grass. It was extremely small. It does look similar, but I don't think it is as rotund as the Globular Springtails on bugguide. I'll keep looking though just in case :)

I'm not sure about this tiny tiny guy ( it's on a blade of grass right?). Might be a little beetle or bug, but I'll tell you what it reminded me of... A Globular Springtail. But I don't see any with that color pattern.
