From my backyard:

Just an additional information about the Common Green Lacewing, Chrysoperla carnea s.l. (Chrysopidae; Neuroptera; Gemeine Florfliege) presented earlier: the picture shows the change in body color during winter time. The animal sits on my window in March, you notice the reflection. Lacewings sometimes overwinter inside buildings.

Hello Dietrich

Great macro of Chrysoperla carnea winter form. It is quite difficult to shoot it sitting on the glass. Twin flash is the right way. The red color helps it to keep its body more warm in cold weather. Perfect sharpness and details. I keep it to my favorites. It is a perfect image. Thanks for sharing.



it seems it was resting on window glass.Good work.

Great detail. Nice Work!
