Many of the smaller Natural Wonders of the Yosemite are are missed by the average tourist and Ladybugs are a great example.. These orange beetles hibernate each Winter at the base of trees in certain areas protected by bark and pine needles. There can be hundreds and even thousands hibernating together and they are pretty well concealed. During the Springtime swarms of orange beetles fill the air as they wake up and fly away.
