Some crane flies mating. I'm not sure of the exact type of crane fly, I think these may make a living eating mosquitos as some of their nicknames include 'Mosquito Hawk' and 'Skeeter-eater'.

An orb weaver spider of some sort. These have been spinning webs on the tops of leaves and I often find them eating an unfortunate fly.

This is a spitbug. Well, the spitbug is inside the bubbles somewhere. They create a protective layer of bubbles around them. Last weekend in the Ramble.

This is a lance fly (family Lonchaeidae) in the Ramble of Central Park. They're found in woodland areas and their larva are typically found under bark.

A wasp of some sort in the North Woods of Central Park. I think these are one of the wasps that lay their eggs in leaves creating those strange bumps.
