I'll Show You Where the Ladybugs Live- by Annie

Follow me.

Jasper can come too.

It's in Oakland. You have to walk up a very steep hillside and go around some trails then down again. My foot was hurting on the way down the hill. There are redwood, oak, and eucalyptus trees and manzanita. I collected some bark and a long rock that is like a tool. I also found some feathers. Jasper ran off after a jogger but he came right back. When you get to the bottom, near the road, there is a grassy place where the ladybugs were last year. This year there are A LOT more. Millions of them. They are "resting" for the winter. Click here for more about ladybug swarms.
Bye!


All the red you see are clumps of ladybugs.


I'm wondering why the ladybugs chose this spot?


The ladybugs are running on my hand!

How cool to see all of the Ladybugs in one place! That's how I feel when I get to see the Monarch Butterflies at Natural Bridges. It's an amazing and breathtaking sight.

DELIGHTFUL! The ladybird was my MIL's favorite. She died a few weeks after my daughter was born. Since then whenever I see one I think of her. How wonderful to have a handful of such wonders!!!
