There are four different specimens pictured here. The first one shown is molting (notice the black exoskeleton toward its backside). The last two photos in this series may may not be of the same species, but I have a hunch that they are. Perhaps someone who knows more can correct me. These tiny insects were enjoying my cucumber plant. The largest of these was no larger than about 1/4 of an inch.

Come to think of it, I did see some lady bugs on the same plant.

Beetle larva, probably ladybug - but I don't know which species.
