Love is in the air

Bitten by a lovebug

If you happen to be driving through the Southeast US  from August into September chances are the windshield and hood of your car  is covered with black bugs.  During mating season (Plecia nearctica) known as lovebugs band together, swarm and make a sticky mess on anything they run into. Since two fly together it can look like a two headed bug. They have black bodies and red heads and are a species of fly.

I happened to walk through a swarm of them tonight near the beach.  I am very careful not to swat them, because they smash real easy.  I am all about respecting and  sharing the planet with all of nature. even the annoying.  For the record they really don’t  bite,  just tickle when they crawl on your arms and legs.

Good vibes you way
