Aeroplankton

“Aeroplankton (or aerial plankton) is the term used to describe the tiny lifeforms which float and drift in the air, carried by the current of the wind; it is the atmospheric analogue to oceanic plankton.” (Thanks, Wikipedia!)

You know what falls into this category? Aphids!

It is always watching you!

And smacking its fearsome jaws.

Let’s recap: Deadly, tiny, and carried in the wind! Ah!

Lucky for us it’s an herbivore.
