The fog of the past few days has revealed lots of fresh spider webs. My witch Hazel is swarming with small midges of some type and crane flies are mistaken for mosquitoes. A few hover flies still linger on winters flowers and a moth came to my porch light just last night, even though the temperatures dropped to below 30. I am in a bug mode, going through my collection from last summer are typing up some labels. I am going to Costa Rica in a week and look forward to tropical entomological splendors.
