Little Green Visitor

I am truly sorry I didn't get any pictures of this that are in focus. The whole insect is about 1/2 inch long. It's a lacewing, considered a beneficial insect because the larvae eat all kinds of aphids, mites, and other insect eggs. There may be up to 3000 species in the Chrysopidae family. I wouldn't begin to guess which one this is. The thing I'm really sorry you can't is is why they get their name of lacewing. The wings have network of veins that is very pretty.

In other news: I'm pretty much down with a nasty cold. Wrote a tiny bit in the morning and managed to format one chapter in the afternoon. Watched a movie and drank tea. Hopefully, my nose will stop running tomorrow.

That's an interesting looking insect. I don't believe I've ever seen one like it.
Hope your feeling better soon. Something must be going around. I woke up this morning feeling very stuffy and I'm dragging.
