um...where are they? has anyone seen them? maybe its just this year, but theres been virtually no flies... for australia, in summer...this feels wrong. strange, i havent noticed any in large numbers for a few years actually. theres been barely any mosquitoes. the trees that once hummed and throbbed with honey bees... silent. the cicadas, normally deafening... just the odd chirp. i noticed, looking at a spider web just now...theres barely been any moths. not even that many spiders, either. still crickets chirping away, so it cant all be bad... or is it? whats going on? is it just here, in sydney? or has anyone else noticed a general decline in flying insects these last few years?
