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.
