red velvet mite

Trombidiidae

Description:

I found this bright red mite on a rock near Aztec, NM. It seemed a little frantic and ran around and around without stopping.

Thanks Misako and KarenL. I think this one was calmer than usual because it was very cold out. :)

Great pics - I found some of these on Friday but struggled to get decent macro shots.

Thanks MaryEvans! It's felt like a long winter, so I'm happy to be seeing signs of life. :)
