One night last week, I found dozens of ladybugs crawling all over my pepper plants. I'm not sure what brought them out in such numbers (a maturing hatching? short lived aphid infestation? just passing through?), but they were welcomed guests all the same. This is my favorite photo out of the set. I love that her little left front foot is all blurry, showing just how feverishly they were crawling about.
