It’s a bugs life

Following the recent wildfires in Basalt, I have noticed a lot more insect life on my daily hikes.

I wonder how many of the flying ones have been forced up here away from the smoke.

The ants were busy moving house from a spot in the shade to a spot in the sun, further down the hill. I suppose now it is dry they want to be in the warmth for at least a few months!

What do these insects do in the snow I wonder? Hibernate? Freeze?

Until next time!
