Weekend Bugs..

An interesting looking Grasshopper.
I'm guessing this is a Moth. (click to enlarge, see the fuzzy head?)

one of my favorite moths, love the colors. ...and a UGLY looking spider!

Great shots. That is an interesting grasshopper. It almost looks bronzed in the photos. And that yellow/pink moth is so pretty. I've never seen one like that before.

Susie said...

I've never seen a moth that color before. How pretty!

Dorothy said...

Darla, I like these pictures! The moth with the fuzzy blue/green head may be a Skipper of some kind. I have never seen one like this or the yellow and pink one, either. They are pretty and interesting.

I know I keep saying this, but you really do amaze me with your awesome pictures.

Wooooooooooo the spider gave me the chill but the rest is gorgeous ;)

Darla, you always find a way to make bugs non-creepy, maybe except for the spider, but everything else actually looks really cool :D

I remember as a child I found it delightful to catch grasshoppers..Now, *lol* no thanks! :P

I am pretty sure the black one with the white spots is a Skipper, been meaning to get the book out to see which one. I had this same one for the first time about a month or so ago. Haven't gotten around to posting it. Gotta save something for winter.

The grasshopper is cool!

I agree with Dorothy, the insect on the yellow and orange flowers is actually some type of skipper.
Great photos.

Darla said...

Thanks for the info I'll try to look it up.

Hi Darla! Thanks for visiting my blog! I saw this post and also wanted to say that that is a butterfly (the brown and white one) and I'm trying to find it in my book but it's a mystery to me. I thought it was a skipper too but it looks like a Longtail (which I think is a type of skipper). I'm interested if you figure it out! A good sourse is bugguide.net if you send them a picture they will usually respond in minutes!!
Have a great day!

Hi Darla, your skipper is a Long-tailed Skipper like the one seen here:
