Bump for ladybugs. Or ladybirds, if you prefer.

It's that time of year, when ladybugs may be seen in nooks and crannies scattered throughout the mountains of western North America. Please keep an eye out for them, and post up if any ladybugs are seen during your wanderings above treeline this summer.

(Inspired by Roy's latest rambling in Colorado thread.)

So, Roy, any pictures?

I'm hoping to get up to the Tusk sometime in the next week, for my annual visit, and will naturally keep an eye out for ladybugs.

Apparently the ladybugs got tired of waiting for me to visit, and decided to visit me instead. They simply flew in.


They're somewhat organized, so it may be some sort of hibernation or migration thing happening. Being that they're Canadian ladybugs, I suppose they'd form a large Veee if they were heading south. Maybe that means they'll stay for the winter.


They're really quite attractive, some might even say magnetic.

We saw what I believe might be spotted blister beetles at Turkey Rocks today. They were a pale blue/purple color with small, black dots on the wings and black bodies.

I hope I'm not bugging anyone (as it were) with this thread. The mountain ladybug thing has me quite intrigued, and it's the season to see them.

No ladybugs sighted during the FaceLift, at least that anyone reported. But some were recently discovered on Samantha's summer vacation thread, at http://supertopo.com/climbing/thread.php?topic_id=432661&msg=432661#msg432661

A recent article about the sad decline of native North American ladybugs. They are being displaced by imported varieties, and possibly things like disease (sent by Tami).

Memo to self: Time for annual hike to Black Tusk, ladybug checkup, maybe blueberry picking.

Well, ladybugs may be in decline, but the nine spotted ladybug, the state bug of New York (who knew?), which hadn't been seen for decades, was rediscovered last summer. A thriving colony, in fact. They were found between rows of carrots and beans, in Amagansett.

They're rather pretty.
