Okay, naturalists. Can any of you identify these to bugs for me? the first was found last week on a green bean plant in Hotchkiss, CO, about 5,300':

The second is this larva in the central Idaho mountains, July 21, about 3,400':


While I'm online, here are a couple shots from our mountains last week:

Not sure but maybe one of the Haploas on this page?

If it weren't for the Int3rwebs, we would not even know that there existed a Moth Photographers Group.

You can also try What's That Bug.

Thanks, Chas! Got lucky, currently on the front page of What's That Bug is the Great Tiger Moth, Arctia caja, which definitely looks like our guy. That leaves the larva.
