Cool Bug Photos

I finally got around to going through some hoverfly photos I took over a week ago. The camera card was in my computer, but I just kept ignoring it.

This bright green-eyed hover fly was.....hovering.....in my back yard - he was staring at me and I was photographing him. He was beautiful as you will see:






I also discovered a small, neat looking bunch of yellow "stuff" on my car's window - some bug laid some eggs:

I think it might be a spider egg sac. We'll see....

Thank you Angie!! I still don't know what kind of bug that is - it isn't a "hoverfly" and I can't figure out what it is.
