Bug Attack

A couple of nights ago, I drove from Kenai to Seward. Around the Cooper Landing area, the sun was setting, and I heard what I thought was rain on the windshield. I thought it was the first droplets of showers. Instead, upon closer inspection, I realized that the droplets were actually former mosquitos who entered battle with my windshield-- and lost. The shield was covered. I was amazed at the size and density of the swarm. And to think that three feet of snow was on either side of the road, slowly melting from the afternoon sun's warm rays...

It's springtime in Alaska.
