An engineer by trade and not a biologist, but I do love nature. My family and I are avid hikers and are out in the woods most weekends.

Agree, ladybug larva. My little girl grows them in a kit from Insect Lore.

This would appear to be a type of fritillary, maybe an Atlantis fritillary, but can't be sure from the photo.

That is a great close up you got on the one image!

This appears to be in the fritillary family, but without a better look at the bottom of the wings it's hard to be sure. I want to guess at the Altlantic Fritillary, Speyera Atlantis, but can't be sure. Nice photo!

Didn't notice the second picture at first. Nice job!

Thanks a lot for the info! I was suspecting a type of moss but it has thrown me because it looks like cedar close up. Much appreciated!
