Monarch butterflies might get all the fame, but some other insects migrate to overwinter in large groups. On our recent OA-led hike at the back of Pismo Preserve, students observed—and were amazed by—convergent ladybugs (Hippodamia convergens) that had converged into clusters on grass blades. These beetles likely migrated from higher elevations to seek shelter in this coastal valley location. Be on the lookout for them before temperatures start warming up, and they fly away!
