A gathering of Ladybird Beetles
Photographer: William Stayton
Location: Black Forest, Colorado
Each year in the fall, Ladybird Beetles gather in clusters like this on our property. They seemed to like Cotoneasters for their gatherings. If you happen to bump into the bush they are clustered in, they swarm around it for several minutes before returning to the cluster.
