Uknown Bug
Hello again! Well I was in the middle of a rousing game of Settlers with my family when this little guy flew down, or droped down more like it, right infront of me. I thought it was sorta pretty with its lime green body and rainbow-seethrew wings. Can you identify it?
Thanks a ton!

Hi Kyle,
This past Saturday night we were at a dinner party, and we told the host (who said he had ladybugs in his garden) that we prefer Lacewings as they eat more Aphids. This is a Lacewing, a Neuropteran sometimes commonly called a Golden Eye. They have ravenous appetites for aphids, both as larvae and adults, and they are a gardener’s friend. Lacewings are attracted to lights, hence your visit.
