[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
From Anne's backyard:

This is the third usual suspect, and never mind the lack of black, I will come back to that :-) It is again called the Green Lacewing (Chrysopidae; Chrysopa perla L.; Perlaugen-Florfliege) like the species shown before. This is a clear sign that people are confused over the systematics of the group. In this picture you can clearly see some of the distinctive characters, the black venation throughout the wing, a black belly, a blueish head-prothorax and some fancy black design on head and thorax. Again it measures only 10 to 12 mm. I could not find out much about its worldwide distribution, so let's cite a source saying that it occurs in temperate Europe and temperate Asia- whatever that means.

Lieber Dieter,
Ja, was entdecke ich hier, eine Florflige aus meinem Garten..Ja, diese Kreaturen sind nicht ganz einfach zu fotografieren,aber diese hier hat sich für dich sogar in Pose gesetzt. Feines Bild mit schönem neutralen Hintergrund.
Interessant deine Notiz mit den spezifischen Erkennungsmerkmalen. Ein ideales Duo Bild une Text für TN, wenn auch hier einige anders denken.
Herzlich grüsst

good captured.nice back ground,

Hello Dietrich - No doubt a well captured picture of this Lacewing. Nice BG and against it details are well visible. Like compo.. too. Thanks for sharing. Regards - Srikumar
