The smallest insects I've ever shot. Mere millimeters and just a little beyond the abilities of my 60mm AF-S (my hand held abilities at least).

I'd love to know what they are (other than nymphs, probably Capsid bugs - Harry?)

Sorry no clue but well done. Those gelatinous not quite done bugs are tough to capture. :smile:

Yes, these are really tiny. Judging from the small size, general shape and build of the antennae I would say these are Psocoptera (book lice, or also called bark lice).
