These are some interesting photos of insects I took in 2003. I have no idea what some of them are, but they are neat to look at. If you can identify them, feel free to educate me on their names.

I did identify the orange and black beetle as the Red Milkweed Beetle. The group of orange bugs is a photo of young Large Milkweed Bugs.
