Someone in red crossed my way

This small, red animal is a velvet mite (Trombidium holosericeum): It`s quite a big mite; this one was 7 mm long. Adult velvet mites eat small insects and insect eggs.

Found this old one in my picture folders: The motif of the picture is an inspiration for a complete new big picture, that I started to sketch 3 days ago. 😉
