I believe these are called boxelders, or maybe milk weed bugs! The weather doesn't have to be very warm for these critters to come out. They were having a meeting on my son's jar of rocks, which were left on the ledge of our house. I know, they are the destroyers of many plants, but somehow, very pretty looking bugs to me also.
These boxelders had the orange colors on their upper parts, and red bellies underside. There were some with yellow color too, but I didn't see them this year. It is Thanksgiving weekend, and families are gathering. I wish you all a great and blessed Thanksgiving!
