Coleoptera Collection of the Hungarian Natural History Museum, Department of Zoology
As the summer has come, we continued our beetle collector adventures in Greece. The team was almost the same, with Attila and András, but now my girlfriend, Petra also joined us. A trip like this is very hard for a woman, but she was smart and assiduous, and helped us a lot in catching beetles. This time we planned a shorter and more comfortable, really summer trip in the northern and central part of Greece. But finally, we travelled 4000 kms again, so it was not a relaxing holiday. The weather was perfect, warm and sunny, except one or two rainy afternoons in the higher mountains. However, the heat made the collecting much harder, and some places were already desert-like.
