Thanks for submitting your excellent enlargement of a Thrips (same singular and plural) a tiny insect in the order Thysanoptera generally found in association with plants. According to BugGuide: “Thrips can often be found on flowers, they are especially visible on light colored flowers like daisies. Be aware that though they are very tiny, they can give a slightly painful bite.” Identifying the actually species is beyond our area of expertise.
