Insects of Yesterday

Net-winged Beetle

These insects were from my Dad's yard (10/12/15).

Rhopalidae - appears to be a red-shouldered bug

A bee fly - after looking at some photos, I think it is in the subfamily Phthiriinae.

The pool drain proved most profitable. I will be checking it daily.

Top row, left to right: a scorpion, a centipede, two mantids, two water striders.
Bottom row: a honey bee, predacious diving beetle (above), either a darkling beetle or iron clad beetle (below), and another possible darkling beetle

I will have to dig into my entomology books at home a little more for the last two.

...And though it did not move for a good fifteen minutes, 
this one...

...was still alive!
