Here is a sampler of some hidden insects that I uncovered.
This click beetle looked very dead. But when I held it in my hand for a few seconds, it moved its antenna and set out its legs. The stump provided the proper environment for this beetle to survive the winter by employing the overwintering strategy of supercooling.
Do spiders dream? Because if they do, this one just woke up from a nightmare and spring is "a ways off" if it can't go back to sleep.
