Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, Papilio glaucus

What sort of limiting definition of "bug" are you laboring under?

A bug is an insect of the order Hemiptera, known as the "true bugs".

P.S. I made the 416 mile trip home from Ashburn, Va. in relatively good time, unticketed.

I'll check for decent highway cam.

I have heard that the Old entomologist does not serve zombies, so what do I care?

What, they have a sign up, ZRM?

P.S. I didn't see your comment until just a few minutes ago, for some reason.

Thunder, I've got fambly in Louden County.

Maybe you've met them while running errands.
