This dragonfly has an abdomen that was as crooked as a politician. :)
Probably my favorite insect! This is a nymph.
Not totally sure on this one...
Nice red Zelus, I think... Will have to browse bugguide to figure it out...
I think this may be one of the hover flies, or it could be a different kind of fly... I'll have to browse some through bugguide.
Wasp doing the paralyzing of this cicada. It lifted the cicada up into the tree and then flew off.
Being paralyzed by a cicada killer wasp...
Was very gentle with this butterfly after I netted it. It flew off just fine.
None of its friends will ever believe it. :)
Thanks to Chuck for ID guidance.
I wonder if these can be ID'ed by case... May have to browse bugguide to see.
A neat find! :)
Have seen this cicada before... Have to go back and look.
