[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These beautiful Lacewings are effective biological pest controllers feeding on mites aphids and other small arthropods.

These voracious feeders become highly aggressive and turn cannibalistic in close quarters..!!! (source: Wiki)

Found this beautiful insect on a window.
Used my ever useful Uniloc tripod for this shot, without which this images was almost impossible to capture.

Used a LED torch to illuminate it when photographing. :-)
