Default BUGs in the Snow

Last Wed it had warmed up close to freezing here in MN.

I was going to feed my horse and a bug went flying and landed in the snow !

I picked it up with the snow and it looked kind of like a Mosquito (State Bird of MN.) - but a little bigger.

Its been cold here and lots of snow on the ground - not sure what the bug is !

When I lived in Alberta, we used to get snow spiders all the time in winter. Any time it was warmed than about -5C, they'd be out on the snow. Other bugs sometimes get confused and wake up in winter.
