Black Beetles

There was the most amazing insect watching today in the goldenrod (Solidago sp.) flowers.
There were at least five of these Epicauta pennsylvanica (Coleoptera: Meloidea) beetles running around the plants after one another. Mating perhaps?
Then there were predaceous ambush bugs (a lighter yellow female and a darker brown one) (Hemiptera: Phymatinae: Phymata sp.) mating and walking about.
And another ambush bug caught a honey bee in the flowers and was working on sucking it dry.

I came across a milkweed plant that was being consumed by many milkweed tussock moth (Lepidoptera: Arctiidae: Euchaetes egle) caterpillars, a hungry bunch.

Another western conifer seed bug (Insecta: Hemiptera: Coreidae: Leptoglossus occidentalis) paces around in the afternoon sun.
