Insects are living things. One of the most crucial aspects to successful species evolution, is the idea that when circumstances change, ones species
must adapt or die. Human beings have been astoundingly successful at this over the years, which is why we can be found on nearly every continent. From
sandy, golden islands, to looming mountains, from the dunes of the Sahara to the verdant beauty of the Amazon basin, from the sunny shores of Spain,
to the frozen hell of the Arctic circle, human beings have a tendency to adapt to their surroundings very well. Though not as well as some of our
fellow planetary residents.
We have had daffodils sprouting in my neck of the woods since just after Christmas, other flowers normally associated with the depths of spring,
flowering forth in the heart of winter. We have had mosquitoes flitting hither and thither, despite the weather being far too cold for that, although
perhaps not as cold as your location.
Nature is being remade before our eyes, the planets normal cycles of weather and season are in tatters, and it makes perfect sense that some of the
species that we know of, will adapt to those changes if they become threatening to their existence, assuming the changes are slow enough that they can
keep up, of course.
