Report Details

Warm windy day. The insects were out on the sand. One beautiful bug was blown over on its back. Its belly was bright irridescent red. When I went to flip it over the back was a bright irridescent green. Amazing colors on this bug. There were a couple ravens looking for a meal and a couple gulls. The sand was being blown hard so for the most part people were on the other side of the rock at the parking lot playing in the stream. The black flying insect that was 3 cm long looked like a termite of flying black ant or wasp. There were thousands of them there. I would have taken pictures of them but the battery went dead on the phone.
