Sugar plum fairy:-) - Anagrus - Female
Millers River watershed, M101 (3), Unknown County, Massachusetts, USA
July 2, 2009
Size: <2mm
Well, this is what I imagine a sugar plum fairy must look like:-) You can read more about these in the leading entry of my Bug Eric Blog. Image taken through a microscope at about 50X. Specimen collected in an emergence trap in the Millers River watershed.

Moved from Fairyflies.

This is Anagrus sp., a female.

Nice Shot Eric!
I'd love to find one of those someday.
