While I was birding...

More cool bugs...

If you know your dragonflies and butterflies/moths, maybe you can help me identify these:


  1. Dunno but it's nice to see how dragonflies have so many different colors and delicate wings. One is a grasshopper. The moth reminds me of the ones I saw as a child living in Los Angeles:)

  3. Top photos a meadowhawk of some kind (dragonfly). Bottom photo is a damselfly of some kind (possibly a spreadwing?). Together (damsels and dragonflies) they make up the order odonata. I'll check filed guides this evening. I'm trying to learn these guys.
