Toby, are the first 3 all the same species? If so, is the difference in colour due to what they graze on?

No first two are genus Smithurides, third is Dicyrtomina a much larger genus, around 2mm. Not absolutely sure about ID of the Smiths, could be aquaticus but I normally get parvulus here and they come in two colour forms.

EDIT
Jans ID'd the little ones as the same species:

Sminthurides aquaticus var. levanderi.

The printed text on the third capture is not only aesthetically pleasing but gives a good indication of the tiny size of the Springtail. Love the composition and lighting on your favourite lens.

depends on the angle, side on can get away with f7.1 but looking along a subject might need f11 which is not optimum for IQ at that magnification.
