Garden Fun Friday - Part of a Whole

Happy Garden Fun Friday!  I think it's a good time for some online garden fun here in North Carolina, as it is looking quite cold and rainy outside.  If you have any gardening fun going on today on your own blog, feel free to join in by putting the link to your blog post in the comments!

On to today's gardening fun:
Can you guess the garden critter from the part pictured? 

(p.s. To give you fair warning, picture #6 might not be for the faint of heart.)

Do you think you knew them all? 
 Here are the answers:


1:
Snail
2:
Monarch Butterfly
3:
Grasshopper
4:
Damselfly (partial credit if you said Dragonfly)
5:
Buckeye Butterfly (partial credit if you knew it was a butterfly, but didn't know what kind)
6:
(Remember, I warned you..)
Spider
(Extra credit to whoever can identify the spider - I'm thinking Argiope Spider, a common orb spider, but I'm don't know my spiders very well...)

 How did you do?  Did anyone get all of them?

  1. I thought it was a dragonfly but turned out to be a damselfly. I missed the butterflies because I was focusing on the spider. Actually before coming over, I was looking at a spider photo that I captured just now and was thinking if anyone could identify it since I took it from an uncommon angle...and here you are with the same thoughts.

  2. I was not sure about the damselfly, but I was thinking it might be a dragonfly. Funny how the buckeye butterfly really does resemble eyes when seen up close! I suppose that's how predators see it!

  3. Such a wonderful and fun project to end the weekend. Thanks for sharing Indie, and looking forward to your next one.

  4. I did get them all. I knew damselfly because of how they hold their wings at rest. I knew #6 from your hint. On my post for today click the blue ephemeral and see what happens.

  5. What wonderful photos. I guessed them all right, too, but I enjoyed focusing on one simple part rather than just taking in the whole at once.
