ThomasCaelifera flower fly
flower fly commented on by ThomasCaelifera Monterey, California, USA3 years ago

I want to say it is a Syrphid fly (Syrphidae). The best diagnostic tool is the spurious wing vein (see: http://bugguide.net/node/view/240586), but it is hard to discern the separate wing veins in these pictures.

That's a morning glory of some kine, probably Ipomoea sp.

I'd say either Nelumbo lutea or Nymphaea odorata

You're right. I'm far more familiar with North American species, but I didn't think any Lonomia species traveled that far north.

Looks like a Dolomedes, most likely D. tenebrosus or D. albineus. http://bugguide.net/node/view/1985

I think it's a sphinx of some sort. You might be able to find something here: (http://www.silkmoths.bizland.com/Sphinx/...)

I agree with that ID. Great shot.

ThomasCaelifera Blue Butterfly

It's probably something close to this: http://bugguide.net/node/view/1245247

Looks like a rose family. I'll check my book and see if anything matches up.
