Lady Bird, Lady Bird

The presence of wildlife is so rare in Los Angeles that a sighting is a remarkable occasion-- it's akin to a celebrity sighting but sounds like "You're not going to believe this! I saw a POSSUM on La Brea last night!" and then everyone tells you about the time they saw A DEER on Lauren Canyon-- an ACTUAL deer!

And a few weekends ago while hiking I saw BUGS! Ladybugs! It's ladybug mating season on the Mische Mokwa trail-- it wasn't full tilt yet, but there were still piles of them throughout the meadow.

Gosh. That's more wildlife than I see. Unless you count roadkill. I don't count roadkill.
