Porchlight Visitors In December

We have had a few porch-light visitors this December.
The weather has been somewhat mild, but even so, most insects have disappeared from the scene.
However, quite a few winter crane flies came to dance under our artificial sun...

You might remember I recently posted about winter crane flies dancing in shafts of sunlight.

Many midges visited our outside lights... not surprising... in the past I've posted pictures of some midges crawling on the snow.

I was a bit surprised to see a green lacewing this time of year...

...and even a battered moth.

Winter is closing in, but I expect we'll see a few tough insects that are out and about on mild winter days.
