The Midwinter Brochymena


Tuesday, 21 January 2014

What do I see today, perched on the bedroom window screen, basking in the greenhouse effect of a south exposure, but a brochymena! My favorite insect!


We see one now and again in the fall, but never before this late. I guess they don’t mind cold, down to and below freezing.


I removed the screen to get a couple of photos.


And then nudged it off into the great outdoors. It didn’t really want to go; I had to encourage it with a fingertip.


Even though you’re really a great little guy, I don’t think I want you as an indoor house guest. May you live long and prosper!
