Snow Flea Fling

Quick! Before all the snow is gone, I should post my snow flea video. It's nothing spectacular, but these tiny insects fascinate me. And, well, because last year's video didn't work...

This winter these insects appeared to be everywhere. Seemed to me there were more of them than last year.



Here's a great link to more info about these tiny terrific creatures:

Hope you flip for these guys too. (Groan, I know.)
