Summer bugs; Pests or specs of beauty?
Summertime brings on the onset of all types of outdoor activities. From hiking to ball games, humans love to explore the glory of the outdoors during the warmest time of year. It also happens to be one of the biggest times of year to discover the different species of insects hiding in your favorite outdoor hideaway.
From looking closely at a favorite flower and realizing there is a pollen covered bee moving the flowers petals, to seeing a black insect with red tattoos on its back scaling the rocks surrounding your favorite hiking spot, insects really can be beautiful if you take the time to recognize the beauty.
Dragonflies and beetles can also be spotted during the summer months with their colorful markings and designs, they are hard to miss. Carrion beetles for instance are black and white beetles that will catch your eye with their vulture like attitudes. Dragon flies dive bomb gracefully around without fear and hover allowing you to see their colors.
Along with all the beauty of course comes bites from the insects. So the question is, is the beauty worth the pain and itchiness of the height of bug season? Of course it is. Just be careful and try to know your bugs. Stay away from the venom and enjoy the colors of summer.
