One of nature's great love stories. Watch the video from -KQED Science
http://ww2.kqed.org/science/2016/02/09/the-once-in-a-lifetime-ladybug-love-in/
Ladybugs spend most of their lives alone, gorging themselves on aphids. But every winter they take to the air, soaring over cities and fields to assemble for a ladybug bacchanalia. In these huge gatherings, they'll do more than hibernate—it's their best chance to find a mate.
