This is a very good picture of a Velvet Mite (Trombidium sp.). Perhaps you've got more pictures from other angles? For more information, you can search further under Arachnida, Acarina and Trombidiidae on the net.
Thank you very much for this valuable contribution,
this is quite an unusual close-up of remarkably good quality as we have to bear in mind the very small size of the Velvet Mite - possibly no more than 1 or 2mm in lenth - and its restless and rapid motion. I tried to capture that crimson coloured speedster several times bit I never succeeded to get that close.
With thanks, and best regards,
