Entomobrya sp.
Do you have a dorsal shot in which the posterior part of the body (here the darker part) is in focus to verify the dorsal pigmentation?

 
Thanks
I have added another. Hope this helps. Unfortunately I was not able to catch one still, they were running all over the place.

 
Homidia socia
Thx. It helps! ;-)

 
Thanks again!
Right after I posted the other shot I went out and looked for more, and was able to get more/better shots. It is cooler and cloudier today, so they were much less active. I assume they are the same species. I'll post them later, and if they are the same I'll link one of the better shots to this post.

Thanks for your patience and expertise.
