Found while walking in a field

Love your challenges, but I'm not sure about these guys. I think they are some sort of a bean weevil and a stem borer moth. Love the way the moth is "hugging" the stalk!

Couple of neat looking bugs you found. Like how the second one has his front leg wrapped around the plant.

The beetle is one of the Scarabs, and the moth is one of the aptly named Snout Moths.

You do come up with some tough ones. ;)

I came to the same conclusion on both after looking at LOTS of pictures.

Possibly Crambid Snout Moth - Hodges #5433 - Fissicrambus haytiellus

and possibly Scarab beetle
