    A Blue dining at the same restaurant chain. The perils of identifying blue butterflies. Show me the upper wing markings and I'd say it was a very bright Common Blue, but the underwing makes me think it's an Adonis Blue. Let's just call it a Blue.

    I thought Crickets were green but I looked it up and the way to tell is the antennae which you cropped off.

    Long antenna, so yes it's a cricket. A male bush cricket I think.

    I think it is female due to that ovipositor.

    The weather seems to be conducive to snail sightings.

    A longhorn beetle I saw the other day while walking a boxer. Not looked for an id yet but it was a good bit smaller than others I've seen.
