Insects count as critters, right?
While walking the beach not long ago, there were a surprising number of lady beetles all over.
So many, in fact, in some places, it was impossible not to step on any.
I also saw a couple of these guys…
At first, I thought this one was dead. Especially when a wave reached its wings and it didn’t move. It wasn’t dead, though, and I was able to move it a short distance, where the waves could no longer reach it.
