  1. fly

    Probably still a sarcophagid, some species are pretty small. Could also be a larger species that had subpar nutrition while in the larval stage.
  2. bug

    Certainly Hemiptera and it almost looks like a molt to me.
  3. Can anyone I.D. this Bee or Wasp nest?

    Agreed with psweet.
  4. Need help with ID of Spider in Texas

    I believe the genus is Neoscona, though sometimes it's hard to tell between that and Araneus.
  5. Several different bugs on a milkweed family plant

    2. Monarch caterpillar (or at least in the same genus) 3-4. Some species of milkweed bug, both nymphs and adults 5. Lacewing larva 6. Aphid 7. Another species of aphid
  6. Field Sparrow?

    Agreed with lark sparrow
  7. Which beetle?

    Probably the reddish-brown stag beetle, Lucanus capreolus. http://bugguide.net/node/view/3107
  8. What Beetle?

    Adults likely feed on sap and other sugary fluids. You don't need to worry about them being in your yard.
  9. What Beetle?

    Mallodon dasystomus - hardwood stump borer http://bugguide.net/node/view/4257
  10. Yellow sac spider?

    You get Latrodectus variolus, the northern black widow, in New York. There's no actual evidence of necrosis linked to a yellow sac spider bite. There are implications, but nothing backing it up, much like recluse bites in areas where they don't occur.
  11. What is this?

    Agreed with snowberry clearwing.
  12. What beetle?

    Agreed with N. americana
  13. Unknown spider Vicksburg Mississippi

    Definitely a trapdoor spider, probably something in the genus Ummidia. http://bugguide.net/node/view/6935
  14. What camouflaged cricket or grasshopper?!

    With the single deep cut in the pronotum I'd call it Dissosteira carolina, the Carolina grasshopper. Patterning and coloration can be extremely variable in this species, most likely due to environmental pressures.
  15. This fly is bugging me

    Might be Vella americana - http://bugguide.net/node/view/182312
