Rose insect ID?

Hi Daniel,
Any idea what these are?  Earwig hatchling?
The things are miniscule — on a rose in San Jose California this morning — not sure if the two photos are of same species.
Thanks,
Frank

Hi Frank
These look like Thrips in the order Thysanoptera to us.  See BugGuide for additional information.
