I picked up a small rock when I was at the beach in Summer 2009, and a ladybug almost immediately flew onto it. I was trying to keep the ladybug on top of the rock; as it walked along, the rock’s rotation would coordinate with the bug’s trajectory. Or was it walking in the direction that I was turning the rock? It became difficult to tell who was following who after the first several turns.
