Bug Gathering

These guys are beautiful, but I have no idea what was actually going on here. They were everywhere in giant piles, crawling around the grass, sitting on rocks and gathering on the storage shed. This reminds me of the Love Bug season in New Orleans when the skies would fill with swarms so thick they were like little black clouds. It also has a faint scent of that awesome scene in Indiana Jones when he stuck his arm into the wall of bugs! Yay!

Does anyone know what kind of bug this is?

It looks like boxelder bugs. I hate those things. They're like creepy flying ants.
