Re: bug ID- Yo Marge!, anyone


Thanks for looking, Zem and Donna.  Those pictures were taken w/my digital
which wouldn't provide as sharp a picture of something so tiny as my SLR
would.  The bug was shown in the photo on a q-tip and the photos had been
cropped considerably.  I have a few on regular film but hasn't been
developed yet.  Also, as I described earlier, these bugs were dead so their
shape seemed to change and the cotton they carry had disappeared.

I just thought that maybe something went wrong w/the message or the link
since there'd been no replies.  Just checking.

Kitty
