Calling all herpetologists and entomologists

Does anyone out there know enough about snakes and bugs to identify a couple of specimens for me? I've put the pictures behind an LJ cut to spare the squeamish.

bug

This picture was taken this past Sunday in Iowa, very close to the Mississippi River. The bug is about four feet off the ground, resting on the side of a play structure.

snake

This snake was spotted in northwestern Virginia about a month ago.
