It's a small brown millipede of some type!

Nuwan's identification looks spot on to me! It's really a charismatic group of moths--nice spotting! :)

That's a moth alright! It looks like a member of the family Sphingidae:

Ugh!! I'm searching as hard as I can, but the only thing I could seem to find that looks close was this little critter:

But I'm not sure that it's in your geographic distribution! Or if it's a close match--the family Xylophagidae is very small.

Wow!! So cool! It's some kind of fly for sure, as it has a pair of halteres instead of hind wings.

It kinda looks like Staghorn Sumac (Rhus typhina), but it's hard to be completely sure without looking at the rest of the shrub!
