This year there is a bumper crop of caterpillars. They are everywhere. Not sure what kind this is, the Painted Lady maybe, I really don't know. The extra water this winter maybe the reason. It's sad to see thousands of them in a driveway, with many smashed from the car wheels.
And this is the first ladybug of the season that I saw this year, sitting on my car window. Just saw it 2 days ago.
I love the warm months, and these bugs. Not looking forward to the nasty mosquitos though!
