I thought was lichen. After picking it up and turning it over, I saw that it was a bug. Lacewings are insects that in their larval stage camouflage themselves with lichen. As adults they help keep garden and vineyard pest numbers low. I don't usually admire bugs. But this is another testament of how nature rules. #nature #naturephotography #naturesmysteries #bizarre #lacewing #earth #mybackyard #lacewings #lichenbug #lichen #naturerules
Larva of a Common Green #Lacewing ( #Chrysoperla carnea) on my blackberry. #entomology Seeing creatures on berries reminds me of my childhood, when I would spend summer evenings picking raspberries with my sister and brother, always careful not to disturb the bees and other insects around the fruit. #nostalgia
#lacewing #rescue This little guy was stuck to the hood, but not too badly. He must've landed when it was almost cured. A little help and some warmth and he was back to normal. Such a pretty little thing. #nature #itstheirplanet #respect
Little Lacewing. The least terrifying creepy crawly i found while clearing out the shed. #arachnaphobiaisshit #lacewing #movinghouse
Check out this beautiful Red Lacewing 🦋 for #macromonday . It took Geoff & Russell Thompson 20 stacked images to achieve such incredible detail. #lacewing #macrophotography #naturephotography #butterfly #queenslandmuseum #macroworld

Tiny hunter parading early morning with it's many trophies. Larvae of lace wings are predatory, and they pile up corpses and remains of their prey on their backs as a safety measure. Preventing successful attacks from other predators. Also helps conceal themselves this way. Here you can see dead bugs and beetles and what not all piled up on it's back. Nymph of Chrysopidae (laceweing), Neuroptera. #tiny #hunter #trophy #predator #showoff #parade #selfdefence #larva #nymph #lacewing #chrysopidae #neuroptera #insect #entomology #bug #arthropod #invertebrate #fauna #thefarmchennai #madras #chennai #India #macro #nature #wild
A totally random photo to post however this stuff fascinates me and I love to learn about Mother Nature. These critters are Lacewing larvae. Lacewings are beautiful shimmery green flying insects, they feed on honey, nectar and pollen and the larvae feeds on aphids and bugs that hurt our gardens. The eggs are on thin stems which protect the eggs from ants🐜 The larvae are said to be as cunning as lions🦁when it comes to their prey...then they transform in shimmery flying beauties. Haha! #biology101 🤗

Today's visitor is a #lacewing , I guess. But not really lively, probably dead or hibernated...
