First six and eight-legged creatures in 2016
As I’ve mentioned in the previous post, some unusual high temperature values were recorded in the first part of February this year (up to +22 degrees Celsius). This allowed for some of the invertebrates that hibernated (either as adults or as larvae) during December and January, to get outside for a quick warm-up. I’ve encountered some of these creatures during brief drives in the Comana Woods, south of Bucharest, in the first half of February. Some small snow patches were still present, and they did make great backgrounds.

Some flies were also present:
