I could have chosen a number of insects for bug of the week today. The mother crab spider’s eggs hatched, and the babies were ballooning away last night. I finally caught a cixiid in the act of laying eggs. The list goes on.

But this one really caught my imagination.


I’ve shown you the beautiful, delicate green lacewing adult before.

Here’s a mystery:  How many lacewings do you see in the photograph below?


Edit: There are three lacewings on this carrot flower.
