The ladybugs of Mount Etna
During late Spring and early Summer, ladybugs migrate towards mountanious areas. The flight pattern cannot be exactly called graceful, as winds and temperuters greatly affect the trek; winds help push the ladybugs higher and closer towards higher elevations, however when the temperature goes below 13 C, ladybugs need to stop flying, beginning a temporary free-fall until their bodies can warm up enough to resume their flight. This causes a sort of beautiful oscillatory motion which can be seen from the ground.
It is still unclear why many Ladybugs seek out high elevations but, in our case, we like to think that perhaps, many years ago, an old ladybug got lost on her way home and ended up over Mount Etna; the view from up there was so stunning that she fell in love with it and since then all ladybugs decided to spend their holidays at this little Sicilian paradise!
