Default Tiny bubbles on surface of beer...

Being fairly new at brewing I find that something different happens with every beer I brew. My current Pale Ale was in the primary for 2 weeks and now is in the secondary for a little over a week. My inquiry is about tiny bubbles that have formed on the surface. They are not large by any means but I was wondering if this may be the start of some kind of infection. I have ample headspace (6 gal carboy) and did sort of jostle it a little bit yesterday. Any ideas?

A pic would be way easier,but it could be dissolved co2 coming to the surface. & be carefull of all that head space. It could let something nastie develope with the air in the larger head space in that secondary. Secondary size should match the beer volume.

Sounds normal to me, especially if you dry hopped.
