Not long ago I got some really tiny juvenile tropical harvestmen (Acromares vittatum)--their bodies were like heads of pins and their legs were like fine hairs. But they are growing quickly, and the largest now has a leg span of maybe 2 cm. This video shows one of these tiny little animals very rapidly devouring a midge (basically a non-biting mosquito).
I shot this video yesterday on my kitchen table using 3 tabletop LCD lamps. Unfortunately I didn't get the colour balance quite right so the video is a bit warm. I'd also like to use a lower ISO to get a higher resolution, but that would mean substantially brighter light, which I don't know it the critters would tolerate. I need to experiment a bit more.
