Bordered Plant Bug

Dear Sharon,
This is a Bordered Plant Bug in the genus
Largus, most likely Largus californicus.  According to BugGuide, they feed on:  “Mostly plants (flowers, leaves, fruit) from a range of families, with a preference for Lupines. L. californicus is not considered a “pest species” of economic importance.”  Your other insect looks like an Earwig.
