OK - I don't mind Deborah - he's one of ours!!! :)))
He's a beaut, but you can keep him! :)))
Thanks Monica. Thanks gnt.
wow is right look at the size of those wings on it LOL great set robryan
Wow again! You do seem to have the knack of finding the great ones Rob! This ones a real beauty, gosh 24 spots just on one wing! I love his red body too! I think I like the Lacewings the best! Thanks!
Interesting creature - nice that something eats ants (that aren't chocolate coated.) heheh
Thanks chookie.I wasn't aware of that pg - thanks for the info.Yes Robbie - the Antlion is the bit that hides at the bottom of the little pits, and strangely enough we have just started to find the pits in our garden recently! They are only about 1 1/2 inches wide & 1" deep - so I'll have to keep an eye out for the winged adults!! Thanks.
Hi Rob, I had to go poking and after an hour found out that these are also called Orange Antlions because the larvae live in soil mounds and mostly eat ants which fall into their pits. What a super picture you found, thanks.
A native for you Rob. Lacewings feed a large number of fish in this world.
No tex - I just found it on a site of bugs found in the Brisbane area. Thanks.
We don't see them here in SA, rob. His head seems to be quite small in comparison to those large spotted wings! Thanks.
What a peculiar looking little fellow. Pretty, though. Do you ever see these? Thanks, RR.
There sure is chickie - thanks.Thanks fileusa.
Quite an elegant insect.!
Now, there's a lot of wing there!
