A a couple of unknowns on our birdhouse gourd vine. Third photo I ID'd today as Cypriacis fasciata, a species of metallic woodborer about which little natural history is known. Pretty cool, thrown in for viewing pleasure.

The first one is a nymph of a bush katydid in the genus Scudderia and the second is a stilt bug in the family Berytidae...
