New sightings on the porch

The blistering hot weather we had over the weekend seemed to bring out lots of bugs in the evening. I saw a couple of new things that were attracted to the porch light.


This bright little banded cucumber never stopped moving, but I got one good shot.



I really liked this snazzy little bug. I don't remember seeing one like it before. After much searching on BugGuide, I think it's Closterocoris amoenus.





This bug looks similar, but not quite as distinctly patterned as the one above. I wonder if it might be the opposite sex of the first one, or maybe there is some variation within the species.


And here, this afternoon, I saw another one on one of my mini-roses.
