Out for a Stroll

I photographed some moss on a stump earlier today, and accidentally photographed some springtails out for a stroll.  I did not see them while I took the picture, only when I saw the photo on my computer screen.

I don’t know the species of either the moss or the springtails.

I photographed another type of moss in the mud along the ditch.

This moss seems to be Plagiomnium ciliare.  If any of you know better, let me know.
