These bugs….I gave a measurement scale with my finger. They are at my porch light nightly and seem very dull looking until a photo enlarges them.
This photo was taken June 23 in Fredericksburg, Va. at 2:00 AM or so (When they seem to be more apt to come to the light).
I’m sure that they’re VERY common, I just don’t know what they are…..All my pics are night time porch light pics.
Little fellows are very beautiful.
Thanks……………………………………………………………………..

Brown Lacewing

Dear Susan,
This is a predatory, beneficial Brown Lacewing in the family Hemerobiidae, a group well documented on BugGuide where it states:  “Adults and larvae predaceous. Homopterans, such as aphids, are favorite prey.”
