In the background of another shot of my mystery deck bugs there was a spot of red. Not knowing what it was I grabbed the camera quick when the one with the spot was in a good position to photograph it. Turns out to be a mite, I think, a parasite. It's barely visible with the naked eye, but because it's such a bright color you can see it. OM 90mm at f5.6 w/ 25mm extension tube. Great morning sunlight on these little ones. The herd is down to 5.
