I think some of the more scientifically inclined contributors to this site might find this an interesting tidbit. I came across it during a Google search and decided to forward it here. Up to this point Iíve never given it much thought but it does offer a plausible possibility.
But than again you guys may be way ahead of me on this one.

When asked what I just caught that monster on I showed him. He put on his magnifiers and said, "I can't believe they can see that."

Allan-

That's an interesting theory, which I hadn't heard before. My suspicion is that optimal water detection may be but one of several reasons for the increased insect flight at dusk. In any event, Merry Christmas to you, and thanks for sharing.
Best regards,
