Owl Fly

Acheron trux trux


THIS IS NOT A DRAGONFLY!! It is an Owl Fly, of the Neuroptera order, the same where Ant Lions belong to, and other lacewings. It came to my house, had a rest on the wall at the back, and left after a while. I have been of the impression that it was a dragonfly, until it was pointed out today that it's an Owl Fly. That explains the antennae
