whats that bug
Hello There,
I was hoping you could help me out. I was out at my grandparents house in New Mexico taking pictures of various things. I noticed a tiny red dot moving in the dirt and found this spider. It’s a very interesting spider to me, I have never seen anything like this. I couldn’t stop taking pictures of it, I find it to be kinda cute haha. Please tell me what this spider is called, Thank you so very much.
Angel =)
(Sorry about the blur, first time using macro on my new camera and no tripod. I hope these pictures are usable.

Hi Angel,
This Velvet Mite is your namesake, the Angelito. They are predatory mites living in desert areas and they feed on grasshopper eggs.
