Landybugs! - Vancouver, British Columbia (Explored)

Now, this is a scene you do not see to often. I came across this ladybug rally on one of my bamboo poles in my vegetable garden. How many ladybugs do you see? I had an opportunity to observe the ladybugs for some time. I do not know why they were concentrating at this point and time. The numbers would fluctuate, with some flying off and others joining the party. As far as I could see, there was no food. Now, I know what some of you will think. I did not see any ladybugs actually mate, though perhaps some long and subtle courtship could have been taking place :) . The photo was taken in June 2011, with my trusty Olympus digital camera. Enjoy.
