Pictures from the weekend

Spotted cucumber beetle - a sucking mouthparts pests - usually associated with curcurbit plants (cucumbers, squash, melon, etc)

Salt Marsh Caterpillar - a voracious eater.  Here they're on some pineapple rinds - I was hoping to get them to leave my plants alone, it seems to have worked for the most part.

Damselfly - when a nymph in a pond, these guys are quite good at eating all those pesky mosquito larva.

Snout nosed butterfly - host plants include hackberry, and favorite nectar sources are Tall Verbena, goldenrod and Joe Pye weed.
