A Yellow Polka Dot Velvet Mite

It's a yellow polka dot Velvet Mite! And it has unusually chunky legs. I know absolutely nothing else about it!

I can only assume it's part of some kind of travelling circus, setting up tent with performing fleas and the Amazing Bearded Ant to bring delight and wonder among watching arthropods. You know when crickets chirp at night? It's a round of applause! Clearly.

I don't think it's possible for a mite to get any cuter!

@John: Glad to be of service!

@ben268: I looked that up, you're right! The mite is cuter though!
