Along for the ride

More milkweed beetles. This pair have been up to something, and now one of them is along for the ride:

When you’re outside these days, keep your eyes open for Red Admiral butterflies. There is a big migration of them, large numbers observed in reports from Wisconsin and even in the Atlantic off the coast of Massachusetts. A group of birders on a cruise for pelagic birds saw dozens at sea. I’m seeing large numbers in my area, even a few at a time in my yard, which is shady and not a inviting location.

  1. Wonderful shot. I just happened to see a couple of these beetles doing the same thing on Sunday.. piggy-backing… but the light was way too low.. just before a big storm. Wonderful photography!
