Cropped and moved for expert attention
Moved from ID Request.

Please click on edit under each of your images...
...and add the sighting date to the Date field.

Also, you'll improve your chances for IDs if you crop your pics as close to "just the bug" as possible. Only you and the editors have the ability to "zoom in" and see the full-size images. Everyone else is left looking at little bugs in a lot of unnecessary background. :)

Thanks--and welcome to BugGuide!

Thank you!
The expertise and kindness on this website is honorable. I'll for sure follow these instructions the next time around. With Spring pretty much here, I've been increasing in my unique insect sightings and I look forward to learning more about each and every one!
