Wild facts: Lost in the light

In places where the moon is the only light available, it serves as a reference point to help these insects fly in a straight line as they search for food and mates.

Life is nothing without dreams

I'm a dreamer. This is not to say that I'm goal-oriented or enterprising, words that would far better suit my husband. When I say I'm a dreamer, I mean I can spend five hours of my day researching a weekend getaway to Paris. I'll get price quotes on flights, rental cars and hotels. I'll plan what sights I'd like to see, from the Eiffel Tower to the Louvre, and what restaurants I'd like to dine in. (So far, I'm partial to Le Buisson Ardent, I think.)
