Excellent sries Brian, seem when the climate start to shift to cold you take shoots of these smaller beings, I mean, more small than usual.

Thanks Gustavo,
Some of the smaller bugs do not appear until the cooler damper months like the globular springtails, but mostly it's actually a lack of many large bugs around.
