This was a cool find. That might sound weird because you don't hear someone saying, "Ah dude I just found some mites." But I think they are really interesting. These guys matched the description on this site and that's what my ID is based on.

Description

This is a Little red spider mite, found crawling on its web. The spider attached its web onto the surrounding leaves. The spider is using the environment to create its place of living. The spider is also getting the opportunity to catch prey like flies with its web. The relationship between the spider and the plant is a predator/prey adaptation.

Description from Wikipedia

Spider mites are members of the Acari (mite) family Tetranychidae, which includes about 1,200 species. They generally live on the undersides of leaves of plants, where they may spin protective silk webs, and they can cause damage by puncturing the plant cells to feed. Spider mites are known to feed on several hundred species of plants.
