Steph's Virtual Garden: Hard Crunchy Bugs
If it's underlined, click the bug photograph or name to see more about it. I hope you enjoy my bugs!
There were too many bugs, so I've split them into two pages. This page has beetles, weevils, grasshoppers, milkweed bugs and some other stuff that seemed to fall into the 'cruch if you step on it; category. The other bug page has bugs that are more soft and squishy.  No, those aren't very technical terms, but the point of these thumbnail images of bugs is to make it easy for regular people like me to ID a bug at a glance and find out a bit more about it. Once you have a name, it's much easier to look it up and learn more.  When my kid asks, "What kind of bug is that?" I can whip out my phone, go the Internet, search "Steph's Bugs" and remember what it is called if I've figured it out yet. The pictures make identification quick and easy. So - here are the crunchy bugs. (I reserve the right to be wrong here and there although I try to be right - verify through a more credible source if you really need to know - this is my hobby, not my profession.)

Empty spots are bugs waiting for me to find them. I don't find them in groups of 4, and I generally get pictures and then figure out what it is.
