Bugs in Congress

Photos of two bugs in congress spotted while watering the container garden early Tuesday:

What began on the hose moved to a metal strip holding the hose.

Being pulled by one’s connected parts sounds like a drag.

The patterns on the backs of these insects is very nice — stylish red-orange, gray, black and white.

They look great on the slightly rusted metal.

Finally the pair ducked into this crack to finish their buggy exchange in peace.
