Wow, check out the massive swarm of Ladybugs sitting relatively motionless on the bark of a tree in the mountains.  This is not the only tree filled with the bugs, there were a whole bunch of trees with this many, and hundreds with less than this.  The trunk of the tree below is about 6′ (1.8m) from the top of the picture to the bottom.  I used the Panasonic FX100 for this shot.  The top part is not in focus because I was too close to that part of the tree, pointing the camera down.

This picture was taken a couple of months ago in the Catalina Mountains north of Tucson, around the 7000′ level.

Lady bugs!
