|This 1-mm-long hexopod might be a Springtail. It frequently took very big leaps and resumed walking very fast. NOTE: The pink and purple is a function of the evening (6:04 PM) light this photo was taken in.||This mysterious arthropod was also about 1 mm long, seemed be a tiny spider at first glance but it doesn't seem to have a distinct cephalothorax and the legs seem too transparent.||This worm-like animal didn't seem to have any legs. It was about 8 mm long. It had a tiny black head (at top, left) and was partially transparent.|
