Entomolgy/Bugs/Insects Question (Oregon)

Please help identify the decedent. My son seems to be having a bug week. Today at work, he came upon this insect. He held it to the sky and noticed a almost transparent space between the thorax and abdomen of the insect. It did not appear to posses a stinger. We’d be interested in identifying the make and model of this bug.

Photography & Travel: Name This Flower

photography-flowers-tropical-travel-swittersbOne of the few splashes of color during a trip to Kiritimati (Christmas Island), I could never quite identify this flowering tree/shrub. I couldn’t find out if it is native or introduced to the London, Kiritimati locale.

Rifle Identification Perhaps? Origin?

First of all let me apologize for the abysmal photographs of the object in question. Had one crack at it in low light with my cell phone. Poor results, but perhaps someone is enough of a weapons guru to see through the haze and say…’oh yes…easy…that’s a whatchamacallit rifle’????

A medium caliber bolt action, rifle. I identified a Japanese WW2 Bayonet with scabbard. In another part of the house was this rifle tucked away. The numbering on the elevated sights is in ‘normal’ numbers. The Serial # is indecipherable to me. The hinged loops for the shoulder strap are on the inside of the weapon. Any help appreciated if someone can make out even a portion of the serial number to assess origin. Again, very sorry for the quality of images. Oh, I don’t have the bayonet close at hand to see if it fits the rifle.
