Blue Eyes Lacewing

Nymphes myrmeleonides

Description:

Spotted this yellow dragonfly-like insect in Southern NSW yesterday. Unsure of the species. It is about 5cm (2") long and has four transparrent wings. Does not have that "helicopter-like" flight of dragonflies, more like a "flutter" similar to butterfly flight.

Sounds like a good enough reason to photograph everything to me! :)

Thanks Staccyh, I was still getting used to the new macro lens, so everything in my garden got photographed.
