Don't know what this is. I found it on a very small (3-4") flowering weed. Its not a springtail, just another one of the tiny insects that I find, that I cannot find a reference to. Think

Don't worry about it, Ken. I have an advantage in that I took an entomology class in college. That and we have a ton of citrus trees around our place that have massive invasions of thrips when the trees bloom. Very Happy
