What are these guys?
April 23, 2010
This morning, after a rain, I found these tiny insects congregating in or near puddles in the driveway and walk. They are little specks, gnat size. What are they? Never noticed them before. We are south of Fort Worth, TX.

Dear Evelyn,
Though we cannot make out the individual insects in your photograph, we are certain these are Springtails which sometimes congregate in great numbers after a rain.  Springtails are not a cause of concern.
