Bear and the Beetles
While helping Yukon clean out the garage on Saturday, Bear wandered out to the front yard's lone birch tree. Wanting to climb it, he was deterred by a colony of unusual lady-bug type beetles that came streaming out of a cut in the trunk.
This captured his attention for the rest of the afternoon, and the procurement of a small magnifying glass just added to the excitement of looking at the "lady bug village".
We're not sure if the beetles survived our hard freeze last night, so our experiment today is to see if they are still wiggling.
