  1. The cotton bug was hard to shoot, the light was low, he was fast and the interior of the cotton seem to reflect more light than the outside giving me fits with the brightness and congtrast..

    Tomato Worm, but what is feeding off of him??
    82513552.

    Cotton with legs, what is this
    82513553.


    82513554.
     
  2. The Tomato Worm has been infested by a Braconid Wasp. That poor guy is being eaten alive.

    The other two are some kind of scale insect, probably a juvenile Mealy Bug.

    Cheers
