Out and About: Jackson Park

This past Sunday was pretty good for bugs on the South Side. Despite the first bad cold snap of the season (way too early) dragonflies, damselfies, flies, bees, wasps, butterflies, beetles and all the other usual suspects were around in Jackson Park.

Mom and Jon take in an mean looking wasp Jon had jut caught, with a caterpillar in it steely jaws no less!

Finding Aquatic insects was more of a challenge, but even a couple larval damselflies were still swimming around in the water.

Hope you are collecting in your spare time - with this weather there won't be any more insects out there much longer......
