THE PROOF OF LOVE BUGS
Let me put together a little photo proof, a photo collage of love bugs on my sunflower leaves! See if you can pick a favorite.
Aren't those two love bugs something? Now, I don't believe it is the same pair on all those leaves since I took some of these pictures at different days and different times ... but a few of them look pretty similar.
I particularly got a kick out of the two love bugs in the last photo, #9. The one love bug was fluttering its wings like crazy to hold onto the edge of that sunflower leaf whilst the attached love bug hung on for dear life. They obviously had made a tight connection and didn't want to let go! Not only are they gymnastic insects, but their "you-know-what-making" is quite impressive ... rather like those gymnasts who twirl by their hair! I think so!
LOVE BUGS ON SQUIDOO
Hey there! Perhaps you found my previously Squidoo lens on love bugs? I originally created that Squidoo lens on January 18, 2008. The highest lensrank it ever achieved was #3,400 overall which put it in the upper second tier. It was lens #252 in my quest for Giant Squid 300 Club. Here is a screen capture from wayback:

I remember back many many years ago when I lived in Atlanta in a Post Property townhome. One of my neighbors had a Mazda Miata. The whole front of the convertible was BLACK ... I mean layers and layers of black. That was the first time I really understood about the IMPACT of love bugs and what they can do to your car.
ANOTHER LOOK AT TWO LOVE BUGS
As I've walked through the four rows of my sunflower garden in the mornings, some of the love bugs have affixed themselves to my clothing and then showed up later in other places. I think these two were a tag-a-long.

Do you love Herbie the Love Bug as much as I do? Yeah, I know I'm getting a bit old for Herbie ... but life is a cycle. You are born and can be found in diapers ... then as you get older and close to being on your way out, you can be found in diapers. Not sure what that has to do with Herbie, but what's old is new again or something like that.
I just wanted to take a moment to celebrate those cool love bug items I found at Amazon as it tied rather nicely into my story of love bugs. Good CLEAN fun, you know? And, I'm not being overly promotional or too commercial. You think?
