Sites near my junior high: (Left) for some reason the summer of 2012 I saw a bunch of these guys living in a tiny marsh near my school. I would pause there each day to catch their red bodies swimming among the plants. The next summer, they were gone. (Right): some flowers planted at a house near my junior high. I’d never seen hollyhocks that color before.
