Old Redwood Post bug

Old Redwood Post bug
Big Basin Redwoods SP, Santa Cruz County, California, USA
October 24, 2009
Size: 1-2mm long
I didn't see this bug at all when taking the photo's, as I was trying for a good representation of an immature Birdsnest Fungus. I doubt I would have seen this with my glasses on, as I'm not good even then seeing things close up.

Hi Scott
It "might" be a Springtail - Class Collembola - Order Entomobryomorpha - Elongate-bodied Springtails. Hopefully someone more expert can confirm this.

I relate real well to 'not seeing" small critters well!
