I am still too geeked from the inauguration to write anything (this is a pretty good description of how I feel–total emotional rollercoaster).

How about a pretty photo of a moth fly? These tiny little fuzzballs are about 2-3 mm or so in length.  Some of them are lovely and iridescent, and up close their antennae are beautiful.

Oh. And:

This cute fuzzy little insect is also known as…

a urinal fly.

Their larvae really like to eat the sludge in your drains.

Just focus on the fuzzy cuteness, ok?

Thanks to G. Yuvallos for the photo!
