yes, it's true, it's more fun to get involved and discover things on the field.

Most of the Bucharest's inhabitants know a very few things about the environment around this area. If you wish to know more, you'll learn about it using such a resource or many others available (printed or on web). But I have to say that I like to learn about this issue mainly wandering around...

yes, but I've been a little ignorant about my environment before finding this site :)

Sorry, it wasn't my intention to give rise to such feelings. I suppose you're not an entomologist, so there is no reason to be ashamed about it.
