    Hi all, I am 99% sure this is just a psocid, but would appreciate confirmation. Photos are here: http://s815.photobucket.com/albums/zz75/slowpoke1967/Psocid
    Thanks!

    Hi,

    100% confirmed as Pscocid.

    Good quality clear pictures as well.

    Thanks for the quick reply, David -- and for the compliment. If I have gained anything from my BB vigilance/paranoia, it's the ability to photograph tiny things.

    What did you use to photograph that? It looks like a microscope pic.

    A microscope would be ideal for subjects this tiny, but the pics were taken with the Super Macro setting on a Canon S5, with the lens right on top of the tape with the bug, and a very steady hand. I used a flashlight for illumination, which I think adds to the "microscope effect" by enhancing the bug's translucence.
