Last weekend, three of us went out to the local fen and set up two 175 watt
MV's and sheets, and sat there until the temp hit about 1 degree celcius, 
and watched a lone midge and a very robust aphid fly in.  That was it.

Last night we went out to a sandy pine/spruce area with bogs about an hour
northeast of here (Edmonton Alberta Canada - and in an intermittent drizzle
with a breeze saw or took the following - also using the 2 MV lites and
sheets.  A few of the id's are still tentative and I am sure a species or
two is omitted.
