Insect Identification

Post by Zachthemac » Tue Jul 26, 2005 7:37 pm

Could someone please help me identify these two insects that I found around my house? I've searched a lot, but haven't been able to figure out what species they are.

I walked over to my aloe plant to water it and saw this dragonfly in the pot. I surprised that it didn't get scared and fly away, then I looked closer and it appears to be dead. Weird though since it looks perfectly intact.

Why exactly do u want to identify them?

The first one is a caterpillar and the second one is a kind of a dragon fly.
