Wonderfully Made

We have lots of bugs here.

(Yes, these may look familiar to some of you.  I top-post when I add a new one.  Scroll down for the most recent.)

Is it a moth or a bee?

Is it a moth or a bee? --- This insect is amazing. It has the wings of a moth but a body that is more bee-like. Notice that the spots in the wings are translucent. It landed on a pillar on our porch and stayed there for hours.

This is not a leaf!

This is not a leaf! --- We saw this one a few months ago. It was on the edge of an open window and appeared to be a leaf caught in a spider web just dancing in the wind. Closer inspection reveals much more. What a fantastically complicated disguise. Don't miss what look like stingers on the tail. I actually got some video of it, too. The movements were incredible...more of that minute quivering and jiggling...an exact replica of a leaf dancing in the wind!

Can you see it?

As gross as it looks!
