Great shots
You're getting some great shots these mild winter days, Tom. You inspired me to get in a little bug hunting after a short day of work today. Good stuff! I'll be posting.+

 
Unusual weather
This is the first winter I've even thought about looking for bugs. The mild temps really help. Maybe now I don't hate winter quite so much, but I still prefer summer.
I'll be looking to see what you found today.
