At an outlet of a stream into Lake Honnedaga in the Adirondacks on August 25, I met this fellow while trying to photograph a toad. Naturally this beauty captured my attention. It measured about 2-4 mmm in length.
Is it a flea?

Your subject line really caught our attention, but sadly, we don’t recognize this nymph. It does appear to be an immature insect, but it is not a Flea. Perhaps one of our readers will be able to assist in the identification.
Ed. NOte: When this was originally posted, we wrote that “It does not appear to be an immature insect” but that was a typographical error. We do believe it is an immature insect, and most likely in the insect order Hemiptera.
