Somehow, bugs and flowers (weeds and all), just seem to go together.

I have absolutely NO IDEA what most of these little guys are. To me, they are simply bugs. But I do know that bugs make the world go round and are important to the food chain (I am very glad I am somewhere near the top of that so I don't have to eat these puppies )

If you happen to know the names of these bugs, you could let me know by email and I will label them and we will all be just a little bit smarter than we were before.

Sooooo ... meet the gang ... click their pics to see them bigger in a slide show.
