I've always liked bugs, and they seem to like me. My dad taught me some, and I had the Golden Guide to Insects as a child ...I think I fell asleep with that one more than once. When I find something new I look it up - nowadays in Kaufman's guide and/or BugGuide.net, so I'm always learning.

that's explained a lot about your wonderful gift developed over time.

this is the best I can do on the insects on my cucumber leaf.

My best guess is the Ghastly Assassin Bug (Zelus luridus) with some dark colored prey - like this:

Some of the bees in my yard are quite docile during the cool part of the day at this time of the year.

I was holding an aster still to photograph, but got boarded. I think the bee was cold and I was warm so it clambered on. They are pretty docile, especially as TD says, when it's cool out.

What critter puts little pin holes in cucumbers and seems to move in there and snack a bit?  They are literally the size of a ball point pin tip.  Green sludge ultimately comes ooozing out???

Pickle Worm.  They will also get summer squash.  Terrible pest down here in the south.  They usually show up in July/August around here.

As a kid, I was afraid of just about all bugs. After buying a house, and working in the yard, I came to realize they're not all scary, even bees. Honey bees and bumble bees are not aggressive, like those nasty yellow jackets and wasps are. I've come to think of bumble bees as the teddy bears of the insect world. Very Happy Love your picture!

I was afraid of buzzing critters until I joined this Forum! Now I am thankful for each and every one!

Anyone have any idea what might have caused this?  Needless to say, when I went out this morning this was off the vine, on the ground.  

We have had a ton of rain?  But.....
