It's easy to see where the Orange Lacewing butterfly gets its name! What a beauty!

This fancy looking insect is a San Francisco Lacewing. They are listed as critically imperiled globally. There also isn't very much information about them online.
As adults they feed on Garry oak pollen and likely other pollens. When reared in the lab a female San Francisco lacewing was observed raising her abdomen to her mouth and ovipositing eggs into her mouth and feeding on them. A female was also observed after mating doing the same thing, but feeding on the spermatophores from the male. (Toschi, C.A. 1965. Hilgardia)

Trash bug circus! This lacewing larvae got stuck going around and around on the rim if this glass jar. Props to @nickolouse
for the excellent music choice, and for the trash bug's coordination in moving with the music. Check out the perfect molting/remains of a spider on its back. These amazing critters carry around debris and also remains of prey on its back in order to camouflage, to not only serve as protection from predators but to also be able to be disguised as debris when approaching a meal.
What fun can be had when we stop and take time to explore the worlds around us. #neuroptera #trashbug #antlion #metamorphosis #lacewing #lacewinglarvae #alwayscrittering #macro #costaricacritter
