My son took these photos of some interesting invertebrates in our campsite. The vegetation is blackberry, rose, and common hackberry for trees.
We would love to know what species these are or any information you could give us.

Dear Barbara,
This is a wonderful image of a Mourning Cloak Caterpillar, and we will be posting it to our site to help our readership identify them in future encounters.  Your other insects are an immature Katydid and an Orbweaver spider.
