Insects adopt amazing strategies to cope with winter.

Caddisflies sunbathe in the snow to keep warm and maggots snuggle up the nostrils of reindeer. Is that why Rudolph has a red nose?

Hear stories such as this and more, see insects from the Museum's collection and meet a Museum fly curator who has travelled the world to study these fascinating creatures.
