Bugs and spiders

Bugs and a few spiders from the trip. I've gotten a huge collection of bug pics in the last year or so. If anyone can give me the proper names of some of these, that would be great.

[edit] Special thanks to drhoz for filling in some of the huge gaps in my knowledge.

This guy was at Stoke's Inlet. Fast moving and fast digging as well. [edit] And it's called a Digger Wasp.

These little guys were very friendly and loved landing on us and just sitting there.

Outside the toilets at Cocklebiddy. So cute with the big yellow blobs on its antenna. [edit] It's an owlfly.

This is the beetle Karno saved from the pool. It was with this photo that it started moving. [edit] And its friends call it prionine cerambycid. But I call it Ted.
