Tomocerus minor (Tomoceridae):

Springtails are among the most common creatures on land. You're likely to find many springtails in any handful of soil, leaf-litter, compost, or decomposing material. Some can even be found on the surface of water or on snow. This tomocerid was found in a crevice on a rotting log, tomocerids have a very long middle antennal segment.
