A rose sawfly, Oribatid mites (and bonus) plus a snout mite and a drinking spider!

This is I think a rose sawfly (Arge pagana) trapped in a spider web:

Here are some Oribatid mites (about the size of a pin head) one of which has a passenger (could be a nematode):

And a snout mite (very quick these are!):

The first time I have managed a photograph of a spider taking a drink. Amaurobius sp.

How on Earth did you spot those Oribatid mites on a dark background?

I don't think I would even see these, let alone photograph them.  

 

 

Spotting the mites was hard enough - focusing on the buggers was even more challenging!
