Description

I do believe this little guy is a lacewing. This guy was on my Laundry room window one night last summer. It had large gossamer wings with the biggest veins. It may not look green but that's because the contrast is shoddy due to the light and the camera reaction. It was very hard to get this guy in the pale green he was. This guy is a very weak flyer and seems to not get anywhere fast when they fly around. I see these guys not often but on some occasions. They are one of my favorite insects. I think that lacewings are very pretty. The cool thing about these little guys is that they are nocturnal. Most of the animals I capture on film are day time animals. However I have a few that are of the night owls. These guys are just one of my favorites for some reason. Their wings just appeal to me.

Description from Wikipedia

The insect order Neuroptera, or net-winged insects, includes the lacewings, mantidflies, antlions, and their relatives. The order contains about 6,000 species. The group was once known as Planipennia, and at that time also included alderflies, fishflies, dobsonflies and snakeflies, but these are now generally considered to be separate orders (the Megaloptera and Raphidioptera).
