Yes it was.

I recall LOTS of grasshoppers when you walked along roadside. This year I only saw one.
Hardly any sulfur butterflys fluttering about and only one lil greenie cat to spoil my salad. All the walking in the forest I do, not one ground nest to kick my heals over. No web worms smothering the countryside. Haven't seen a Luna moth in years and years...not many lightning bugs a flickering...Yes most certainly, quite a few are on the downfall.
