Snow fleas (actually springtails in the Subclass Collembola) are out now!

I have been seeing lots of Snow Fleas out these last couple of days in this relatively mild weather. I didn't note any concentrations as dense as this one, however -- which I observed and photographed several years ago. They usually just look like black pepper flakes on the snow, until you see that they are hopping (springing) from place to place.
