Sure, it's a cliché, but it's a cliché worth using again!

Hi Rik,

I think Lacewings are one of the best insects to image. They have such interesting faces.

I posted a Green Lacewing image back in the winter, at which time there was no green colouration at all.

It's nice to see one at a different stage of seasonal development.

Great image Rik.

Bye for now.

Doug, yep, it's a stack. About 60 frames at 0.002", Olympus 38mm bellows lens at f/4.

This subject is a fresh specimen, posed, not live. The beast was limping up the inside of one of my kitchen windows last night. I got to it just before the jumping spider did. Little change in outcome for the lacewing, but probably the jumper was annoyed! :lol:

George, thanks for the link to your earlier image. That one slipped past me in a very busy weekend. I've added a couple of comments to that topic, about the color and the antennae shape.

Thanks for the comments, guys! :D

Somewhere there is a jumping spider standing in a "soup line," outside a mission. Cold and all alone, part of the dreggs of society, half pint of Ol' Fly in its overcoat pocket, reeking of yesterdays ants. :lol: Neat photograph Rik :D

SOME CLICHE! I'm a nut, but even I don't have this "cliche" at this magnification in my portfolio. Very nice.

But I understand that Jumping and Weaving Spiders Local #452 is going to be picketing your house waving signs and weaving webs saying "unfair" starting tomorrow....Or maybe I just read Charlotte's Web too many times as a kid! :wink:
