Nature, red in tooth and claw

There's a pine tree outside that smells like no kitchen and bathroom cleaner ever made. The day they make a cleaner that makes my apartment smell springtime fresh is the day I'm living in a tent in the Oregon wilderness.

Another batch of ladybugs is swarming. Hundreds of them were congregating on the tires of a tractor-trailer in the shippnig yard. Their coloring varied wildly, some a lighter orange with no spots, others duskier with many huge spots making them look almost black. At one point about 10,000 alighted on my jacket, took wing, and flew me to a magical wonderland where everyone eats Lucky Charms all day and sings ABBA songs all night.

Well, the last bit didn't happen but it could have!!
