Hello first off thanks very much for reading. I have had several bug bites on my legs (around 10) over the past few days, and woke up this morning and found the actual bug that had been biting me. I have attached pictures but am not quite able to identify it. It is very small but I took a picture through a pocket microscope. Can you help me identify it please? The bites are not painful and barely itch at all.
Thanks!

Hi Henry,
Thanks to your microscopic enlargement, we are able to identify your culprit as a Mite, though we do not have the necessary skills to determine a species or genus or even a family.  There are many biting mites and some typically trouble birds and others rodents.  If there was a recently abandoned bird nest near where these bites have occurred, it is possible that once the birds left the nest, the Mites resorted to biting humans out of desperation.
