The Teeny Tiny Bug on the Clover

Yup, that’s some kind of insect. Nope, I didn’t know that when I was taking the picture — I was just trying to test out the new lens on a bit of clover. I didn’t see the bug til I was looking at the images on the computer.

(Please note: with the use of the term “bug” I don’t mean to step on any entomologist’s toes. I am simply not well versed enough in insects to know whether this is a true bug or not. There’s a really great discussion that went down over at Myrmecos.net if you want to get into that sort of thing.
