Firewood Critters

I’ve put off cutting firewood for most of the summer.  Now it is getting cold, and summer will soon be gone.  So I have started cutting some.

I easily get off task, however.  Here are some critters I found under the loose bark of some wood that was cut a few years ago.

Here are some small millipedes.

The quick gloss snail, Zonitoides arboreus, is often found in clusters in rotting wood.

And of course, ants are always disturbed by the destruction of their habitats.
