Lady beetle lady at TX mini-gathering - Female
Laguna Atascosa, near Brownsville, Cameron County, Texas, USA
June 4, 2010
Size: 64 inches
Just before sunset and four hours of blacklighting with six awesome guys at Laguna Atascosa, it was one of the most memorable nights of my life! (No, not because of the six guys, because of the several thousand insects!)

I had to take some pics of this gorgeous Texas sunset or my mom would never have forgiven me. Unfortunately, I got better pictures of it than most of the bugs...

As one of those six guys, I resemble that remark!

 
well, *also* because of the six guys :)
I'm afraid it would've sounded a bit too X-rated if I didn't make it clear we were there for the bugs :)
