There is no town near where I took these pics, just farms, scenery and good people.
The American giant millipede (Narceus americanus)
This is a nymph stage of a true bug (Hemiptera). It is the assassin bug Zelus luridus, the pale-green assassin bug although I would call it the lurid assassin bug based on its Latin name. Beautiful little thing
No clue what this caterpillar is, but a fine looking one
