Looks like Trombidiidae, I think.

Moved from true velvet mites.

My amateur stab at it - Trombidiidae (Velvet Mites), Genus Allothrombium ? I'm curious how this turns out as I took some pics of a similar looking one in MO.

Thanks, Andy
It was supposed to be titled Mite. My mistake. And I think you are right on the ID.

Pretty shot.
I really like this one. Nice job.
