By popular demand, this thread is for your pictures of arthropods: insects, spiders, scorpions, crayfish, crabs...  ID discussion is welcome (unless the administrators object).  I've gotten a lot of IDs at BugGuide.

I almost only post non-birds to INaturalist now as that AI for identification makes it a little easier.  I think I have a few on BugGuide.

Great photos but I especially love the first one.

Do you know what this is? I see bee family perhaps but I also see the potential for Robberfly mimicking a bee. If you know please share.

Those antennae look like a fly's, not a bee's, to me.  I can't tell whether it's a robber fly, but I'm far from an expert.  (That gorgeous first picture has to be a robber, though, right?)
