Lady bugs and lightening bugs are the favorable bugs of summer, particularly if you’re in the Midwest region of the U.S. Both are bugs that I associate with childhood Julys in Kentucky. I particularly like this shot by Lili Living because of the contrast of texture and colors between the lady bug and the blades of grass.
If you have any shots to share that hint at a place that evokes a memory of summer, send them our way at Gadling’s Flickr photo pool. (Other shots are welcome as well.) One might be chosen as a Photo of the Day.
