Adults, and nymphs, looks like three instars. ID'd through guide, and here.On Prickly pear, opuntia humifusa.

Neat shot!
Great shot! I agree with the genus, but think it might be a different species. Not sure how many there are in North America.

I thought I might have gotten one right, I guess thats what I get for thinking:) Would a better dorsal shot help? I also have an image from July of a mating pair that are a little more of a yellow-orange color.

Owe you an apology!
Gee, I didn't know there were different SUBspecies! Thanks for the heads-up via the link to "Featured Creatures." I stand corrected.

No apologies here, as much as you help me, I am grateful that you take the time to sort my mess out. Thanks again for all the help you give.
