Great shots, John! They show interesting action. That is a cute face on No 4. All MPE65?

The first shot of a Harlequin Bug is a "true bug". But since you folks are posting beetles and other "non-bug" insects, I'm assuming the odd spider is appropriate here.

Those are neat, especially the colorful harlequin bug. The mantis one is very artistic. I've never seen a ladybug with such colors. Being Australian, I'm sure all these critters are extremely dangerous. ;-)a Yes, spiders and such buggy creatures are welcome here.

You're not allowed to post pics of colourful bugs, that's cheating!!!

(lovely photos, too :D )

A bit of artistic licence with a soldier fly, most likely Stratiomys longicornis. A first for me in the garden, and there are quite a few of them!! I thought it was a hoverfly at first, and then a bee. Stunningly coloured in the right light.

Wow - really a fly? It looks a lot like a bee. Nice shots.

Well, there are flies and then there are flies. This is a soldier fly, which is on the same side of the family as a bee. The other side of the family are the flies that bother you at lunch by sitting on the cheese after smearing themselves in cow-dung and sleeping overnight in dead bodies :D Soldier flies are pretty harmless and do a good job in the garden. One of them, the Black soldier fly, is very good at waste management and they're bred in their millions to do good work in breaking down organic matter on an industrial scale.

Very interesting. Useful bugs as your link attests. I also read about them elsewhere on the web. They look fuzzy like bees, but I see they are Diptera, so true flies (with two wings).

After contemplating this a bit my slow-working memory was registering that I had seen a soldier fly before. Two even. Here are pics of them, the first a Green Soldier Fly in Indiana, the second a different kind in Kitchener, Ontario.
