Everywhere you look in downtown Cheyenne are little... white... flying... buggy....moths?
Well, whatever they are, they are everywhere...
Last fall I had the opportunity to broadcast a football game in Sheridan, Wyoming. The press box was crawling with these guys, the door to my hotel room was crawling with them too...
Have you ever spotted a praying mantis here in Cheyenne?
While walking to the parking lot of the ANB Bank last week, I encountered this praying mantis on the sidewalk near the drive-up ATM along with lots of other insects and beetles, some of them probably became her dinner.
Have you been seeing lots of millers lately?
It's that time again around our region, when temperatures rise and the millers move to higher ground, passing through Cheyenne. This year already looks like a bumper crop.
