Insect Macro: Green Lacewing


Here are some macro shots of a Green Lacewing which is approx. 10 mm long. 
During summer, these beautiful insects are usually attracted by the lights in our kitchen at night... it is the only time that I had an opportunity to take these macro shots, I never saw any lacewing when I go to the park during daytime.


The Green Lacewing has a long slender pale-green body and veined wings...

It also has long long delicate antennae...

The lacewing´s eye has  a golden color  but looks somewhat reddish here because it reflects from the background



Here is a Close-up showing the compound eye 

All the above photos were single shots taken with Nikon D90 + 55-200 mm kit lens + Raynox DCR250.
