Today I went a knocked around a bit in some remnant sage on the rim of the Snake River Canyon. It is just a few days away from the first flowers blooming and the Bromus tectorum (cheatgrass) is turning green. It is still a little cool for insects to be out and about, but I did find some eggs of Obtusicauda sp. (sagebrush aphid). This will be a good spot to return to to hunt ladybugs this spring! Hunting predators means you had better be tracking prey!
