Yes hello tiniest of smol friends what are you?

@nanonaturalist do you know what these friends are? I think they look like moths but they’re super tiny, only 2 or 3 millimeters long

They are pretty tiny! It’s hard to get a good look, but the body posture reminds me of non-biting midges. They’re related to mosquitos and a lot of them look very similar to them. Some of the ones in Texas are pretty big, but many are also VERY tiny. They are also hard to identify!

Your friends could be something else, but these were the first things to come to mind. I don’t know of any moths that hold their bodies quite like that.
