Bugs in the garden

Winter in my garden looks very bedraggled.  There were lots of aphids and bugs on the weeds, and lots of caterpillars too.  Without caterpillars there won't be any butterflies in the spring and summer so I left the weeds alone.  Caterpillars were clustered all over but the photos weren't interesting enough to post.  More interesting were the other bugs - aphids, a small spider and another bug (as you see I'm not very well up on insect identification).  But the first photo is actually (I think) a piece of the dried out seed head of a weed - looks just like an alien!  Both photos were shot on Aperture Priority, F/2.8, ISO 100.
