Many insects jump, fly, run, crawl and swim around in warm weather. Depending on the species, temperature, amount of sun, humidity levels and force of the wind, they may be active at night, in the daytime, in the evening, in the morning, or even all day long.

When you find an interesting site, go back several times over the course of the year. That way, you will discover the different species that live there in different seasons or observe the stages of development of one species, from egg to adult.
