Today I was shooting Tennis on my 7D... and noticed two tiny bugs under my focus screen, slowly crawling around. This was quite distracting.

I was able to remove the bugs without issue by taking out the two screws and removing the focus screen.

Would we happen to have any insectologist macro photographers out there who may be able to advise me on just want type of a bug would attempt to call my focus screen it's home?

Thank you.

Well, you know it couldn't have been a shutterbug, otherwise it would have been in a different area. Since it was in the VIEWfinder, maybe it was a SPYder.

Could be tiny sensor-cleaning fairies

More sensibly they're probably dust mites
