Warm weather brought out bugs of all kind, and this Eastern Boxelder was no exception. I started to see a couple of them already around my home. They are colorful and pretty bugs to see, but still, they are bugs, and I don't like them around.

The belly of this Eastern boxelder is red, and I wish to have a picture of it, but I just can't catch it! It is quite pretty to see.
These last two years, the Eastern boxelders seems to like our area. We see them in early spring and late summer. Not sure if these bugs have anything to do with my peony plants or not, but my flowers didn't bloom last year.
