Great spotting & photos Lucky. The adults and larvae predate on millipedes. The larvae seem to have a luminous stripe on each abdominal segment and a pair of lateral spots. Very nice !

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!

Bigger than the TV antenna we used to have in the good old box-like Black &White TV days.

Nice. I spotted my first one of these the other day, but all I had was my iPhone so I couldn't get any decent pictures.
