New moth plus a couple of grasshoppers

This is the Beet Webworm or also called the Hawaiian Beet Webworm (Spoladea recurvalis).
It is a new county record.  It was a little thing; only about 1/4 inch across. I know it’s not a very good photo, but sometimes that all I can get. 
This was gorgeous red-pink. It is of the Melanoplus genus 

Look at the spur between the front legs. This is why some grasshoppers fit in the spur-throated grasshopper group. This is Two-striped grasshopper (Melanoplus bivittotus)

This was such a pretty yellow Differential grasshopper (Melanoplus differentialis)

Keep on looking!
