    I especially like the leaf-footed bug, and the first butterfly, the one with the blue coloring – what is it?

    The butterfly was in a exhibit at the Tucson Botanical Garden. I believe it is a blue clipper, Parthenos sylvia.

    The true bugs are giant mesquite bugs, which I wrote about here: http://blog.growingwithscience.com/2011/08/bug-of-the-week-giant-mesquite-bugs/

    The butterflies are lovely, and you have some great macro shots of ants and bees, but my favorite photo is the ‘bugs’ with the cactus!
