Possibly a ground spider? About 2mm long. Red body - black & muddy grey abdomen. Somewhat resembles recently spotted adult ground spiders I found. This one was ballooning and landed on my finger. Third photo shows it on my finger joint. Second photo has it on surface of faux stone bird bath.

No this is not an ant. It has 8 legs. It's a spidering.
