Springtails on Gutter - Katiannina macgillivrayi

Springtails on Gutter - Katiannina macgillivrayi
Farmville, Pitt County, North Carolina, USA
November 3, 2013
Size: 1mm or less
Can anyone tell me any more about these little Guys? Species? Food? Sorry for blurry images, They're just so small!
There were about 5-7 crawling around on my gutter. Some were as small as 0.5mm and some were up to 1.5mm. Just a few days before, there were Hypogastrura crawling on it.
