On Ned's first nature walk of the season, we noticed what look like webs on many and various plants. In the riparian area about the dam, Lyn noticed bright red on some of the webs. Fred Heath, highly-trained and fearless naturalist, picked up some of the red to show us these tiny animals. Spider mites, most likely. See this site for more info. Thanks to Lyn Hart for the link!
