Possibly Amphiagrion saucium - Eastern Red Damsel - but I don't wish to make it a formal ID suggestion as I'm not sufficiently certain.
Rock rabbits are certainly a favorite mammal of mine. Great picture!
Thanks Neil - very happy to be here. Thanks indeed for the kind words. I hope I can add something useful to the Project Noah community.
It's an arthropod larva - of just what sort I can't tell.
It looks very much like an Atlas Moth, Attacus atlas (http://eol.org/pages/385381/overview) but I'm not aware of that species being found in Central America so I don't want to make a formal ID suggestion.
Was this at Ecola State Park? I've photographed this species there many times. It's very reliable for them this time of year.
Thanks. Happy to be here. Hope I can be of help; I really enjoy researching out identifications.
Lepidoptera yes, moths no; these are skipper butterflies (but I can't quite make out the species).
One of the best examples of Batesian mimicry I've yet seen. A superb sighting indeed!
