Wednesday Potpourri - Bugs

I know I saw more bugs since I got my camera but since I've met (Joan the bug lady) more are coming around. Click on any of the photos to get more detail.

This was a very small butterfly that I found at Tinkers Creek State Park. It has such great markings for a tiny thing. This is a Common Cabbage White I found in my yard.
This is a small American Copper from my yard.
The little tiny spider on the deck.
This is even a smaller one that matches the deck quite well.
I saw this is a wasp I saw when taking some flower photos.
This is a Tiger Beetle from the Kent Bog. It has that fluorescent green color plus some great spots. This is the closest I will ever come to seeing a real tiger in the wild except for Thomas on his T&S Site. Check it out for great wildlife photos.
Hope you enjoyed getting up close and personal with all the insects.

Great shots! That green tiger beetle is striking. It makes me wonder why he is so brightly colored.
