Though I long ago ceased capturing and impaling insects, I've never stopped being fascinated by them. I imitate some with thread and floss and fur and feathers in creating lures to catch panfish, bass and trout, the imitation depending on the time and place, and which natural insect might be around.

There can be a transition period—when the melting snowpack actually makes deer more vulnerable to predation. When snow melts during daytime hours and refreezes at night, the crust on its surface may allow the deer's chief predator—the eastern gray wolf, known through most of recent history as the timber wolf—to run atop the snow with its broad, soft padded feet. Deer, with small, pointed hooves, break through and are hampered in their attempts to escape. Photo illustration, Metro Creative Graphics, Inc.
