Local Newspapers All Abuzz About Bugs

Both the Tuesday Camera and the Colorado Daily had pictures of massive invasions of lady bugs on the cover.

I noticed lady bugs swarming up here nearly a week ago. The now seem to have congregated at the top of green mountain.

In related news, I also see Ips beetles flying around. I just noticed today that they had burrowed by the dozens in a section of lodge pole pine that had snapped of in the spring snowstorm.
