Year of the Insect
I am officially proclaiming 2007, the Year of the Insect.
First there were moths.
Tonight, I tried to go jogging tonight but could not make it very far due to the insane swarms of fishflies underneath every damn lamppost. For those of you not on the east side, it’s fishfly season and it seems particularly bad this year (doesn’t it every year?) Along those lines, I’m pretty sure the New Baltimore Fishfly Festival (or whatever it’s called now) is coming up soon.
Does anyone know the origin of the Michigan fish fly? I googled it but couldn’t find much. Is it because most of the coast of Lake St. Clair used to be swamp (maybe?)? Either way, it’s a good time to be alive if you are a bat, seagull, or bass.
