bugs' life

just sharing some pictures of insects we found at ate's garden last weekend.
it must be butterfly season!
ate's zinnias are attracting these beauties.
her pink single-petal zinnias are blooming profusely and
butterflies are gliding from one flower to another
sipping nectar.
my nephew actually caught several of them.
here's a black and blue one under the tico berry tree.
we then went to another corner of ate's garden and found these!
i wonder what's these bugs called.
lots of them living in the madre cacao tree.
the most interesting insect we found that day is this.
it looks like a yellow lady bug.
look again! they're munching on leaves
and have those clear/plastic-like black dotted wings!
wonder what this one is called?
got any idea???

Not sure what the last one is either. Have seen the green ones like that but not the yellow ones.

i like your bugs! i have never seen anything like them here in north carolina. the yellow one with clear wings looks more like a toy than a real bug. very cool.

Great captures, Angel. I vaguely recall that one of the bloggers is very good with bug ID. Maybe you can ask around and then ask him/her?

ANGEL said...
