Enchenopa binotata
This must be them but I'm consumed with curiosity about their behavior.They're so social-moving all together, facing the same way, shoulder to shoulder. Keeping their eyes on me and moving as one to always face me.Doesn't that seem to you experienced bug people that they have a certain intelligence? And why show up each year to meet with their own kind. They weren't mating. What was their purpose in gathering? Is there someone like an insect behaviorist?
Thanks for any insight.
