These tiny insects were found on Mongolian Oak trees near the Anacostia river (Quercus mongolica). The amount of these insects per leaf can range between 5 and 20. They have a very interesting wing pattern that is clear and black.

Miniscule lace bug, under 5 mm long.
Brief description of what you observed
I saw this lace bug crawling on my desk when I got to work this morning. I placed my hand by it, and it then crawled on my hand for a bit before crawling back onto the desk. I did not see it fly away, but when I put away my camera I no longer saw this bug.
I assume that there must be other lace bugs in the Nature Gardens, and that this one made it way into my office through a crack or perhaps landed on me when I walked in this morning.
