I saw two of these Soldier Beetle larvae (Family Cantharidae) atop the thin coat of snow. They quickly warmed up in my hand and wandered around. (I photographed this one at home in a light box, then released it.)
A story: Fifty or so years ago, identifying this insect would have been a major chore for me, taking days to months to years of finding printed references and/or mailing the pickled larva to a specialist. Today, I posted this picture to the "Friends of Coleoptera" Facebook group managed by the Natural History Museum, London. I had the ID in under a minute, provided by Martin Fikáček from the Czech Republic. This astounds me; it seems miraculous. Thank you Martin. Thank you Internet.
