We are having very warm weather still. Here is a photo I took a couple of days ago. I was surprised by the number and diversity of very small insects flying around. Are they present in the summer, and do I just not notice them because of the larger insects flying around?
This is a midge in the subfamilyOrthocladiinae. I don’t know much beyond that–It looks like a mosquito but does not bite. The hairy antenna indicates that it is a male.
