I was taking lichen photos today. I didn’t realize until I looked at this one on my computer that there were tiny red beetles crawling about on it!

I found some of these mites in Birds Nest Fungi, but they were a bright pink!

I should say the largest of the black dots are about 1 mm. So the little mites are very very tiny
