      The first one is actually a bug I scooped out of the pool. The background is the net. It was unfortunately deceased, but when I took the photo it brought out these amazing colors! The black bug was crawling along the edge of the pool and I think looks like an alien being. The other two were captured on my Virginia Creeper vine and are hummingbird moth larvae at different stages. They are fascinating. No insects were harmed before, during or after taking these photos. I relocate the hummingbird moth caterpillars to the lower lot as they make a tremendous mess on my table that’s under the vine.
