Hundreds of ladybugs take over Capulin Volcano

New Mexico

The ladybugs are back. 

Each summer at Capulin Volcano, hundreds of the beetles take up residence at the highest points of the volcano. 

The annual phenomenon is called hill-topping. 

After feeding all summer, they hibernate through the winter on the volcano. 

Officials at Capulin say the best place to see the ladybugs are on the Crater Rim Trail.
