wonder if these are springtails or something else?
There is not enough detail in your image, even when enlarged, to reveal the identity of individual insects, but we believe these are most likely Springtails. Springtails that become active on sunny days in the winter, even with snow on the ground, are called Snow Fleas. Since we will be out of the office for a spell, we are postdating your submission to go live in our absence later in the month.
