This week's Photohunt theme is Spotted. I had a couple of ideas for this but nothing inspiring. So I turned to google and checked out what other images came up for spotted. Okay... yes I cheat. :) One of the photos was of ladybugs. That reminded me of these great lady bugs that we found in Eastern Washington in 2007.
We went for a long weekend at Cave B resort. They had a winter special and a great deal. Just north of the hotel is Ancient Lake in the Quincy Wildlife Recreation Area. The day was cold but sunny. We hiked to Ancient Lake at the base of basalt coulees. In the dry grass along the shore, we found these amorous ladybugs.
Here are a few more shots of the area taken in early April.
