Not sure of this ID since the flowers were yellow but all the resources I looked at show white flowers for Alamo Vine.
I seen one of these many year ago in the days of film cameras and found it commonly called a Dew Drop Spider the name I have here is the closest match and it seems as it commonly shares Garden spider webs and is only a few Millimeters long.
I am still working on the ID of this robber fly. It was small; about 3/4 inch long max. 4 shots posted.
Any help with species ID appreciated.
In the field this critter looked all black. I used a flash and the images show blue highlights due to the flash. No idea what wasp this might be. Only got these two shots before it flew off.
I think this is a Eufala Skipper (Lerodea eufala) or a Julia Skipper (Nastra julia). If anyone has an idea which, please let me know. I did not get a shot of the underwing.

I saw the upper wings several times, but my only photos were of the closed wings.
One of our most common of the "plain" brown skippers, but when you get one that is very fresh, such as this one, some nice images are possible.
