That's the stuff nightmares are made of (according to my daughter).
Ladybugs are my favorite bugs. I have an orange car and her name is Ladybug. I'm not sure how I would feel about THAT many bugs!
lol...the person said they could feel them crawl up the their leg...ack
oh. ack. oh. oh. oh.
It's like lovebug season (shudder)
I've always like lady bugs as well...although I doubt I would have taken such a liking to them had they been called gentleman bugs.
At least their roses won't have aphids. :lol:
Oh goodness...no thank you! ack!

oh jeezus, I hate lovebugs with a passion. We had a HUGE problem with them at my university. You would walk across the university to your dorm, lay down and then feel something crawling down your back and reach in and pull out lovebugs.
I've never heard of lovebugs. I just googled them and I don't recognize them either...
That's the ONLY type of bug I don't mind seeing around...but only a few! No wonder I hardly ever, ever see any, they're all there!
There are tons of lovebugs in southern Texas. You always see two of them flying stuck together.
Lots in FL, too (during season)... they're attracted to white. White clothes, white cars, pale people... they don't bite or sting, they just get EVERYWHERE and their icky little legs crawl and crawl and... shudder. I hate them.
My brother had a white car in college. We were heading out to lunch and couldn't find his car... it was like that tree trunk. Completely covered in lovebugs - it literally looked like a black car.
Kind of cool-ladybugs are good bugs so I'm glad the neighborhood is treating them kindly! The ladybug tree reminded me of monarch migration - they cover the trees to rest during their yearly migration south:
That photo of the butterflies is beautiful!
I teach monarch migration every year with my class. I've been a part of Journey North for about 10 years...http://www.learner.org/jnorth/monarch/
Great integration of math, geography, science....
