Several years ago, while walking through the brush of the Dry Canyon in Redmond, Oregon, I noticed a small bug crawling around a ‘winterized’ sage plant. It traveled so fast, I couldn’t get a good shot of it.
A year later and about the same time of the year, I was again wandering the brushy areas of the Dry Canyon when I again noticed a small bug on a plant. Heading over to that plant, I saw the same sort of bug I had seen the year before. Only this time, the bug gave me time to get a portrait of it.
I have yet to identify the beetle, but believe it is in the Ladybug family. But I sure think it’s an interesting critter.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
