Thanks. I've been watching the lacewing eggs hoping to find one hatching. Today was my lucky day!

That is VERY cool!!! I am just not finding lacewing eggs on their stalks this year, not sure why. But to get the larva---wow!!!

I was trimming dead wood from the oak in the front yard and something flew, landing on the dead twigs of the ash...so I went over and it was an Owlfly.

I always think of you when I see an Owlfly. They are so cool. Thanks for pointing them out to me.

Most of the lacewing eggs I'm finding this year are solitary. Last year I found them in groups. This your I've found a few groups and lots of single eggs. You might try going out and looking at the edges of leaves for a single egg stalk. FWIW, most of mine are on hackberries this year.

This is so great. I wish I could see the things you do. Oh wait, I can, because you take lovely pictures and post them! Thank you. And what does an owlfly look like?

See my owlfly at http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=owlfly&w=86497720%40N00.

See Elizabeth's owlfly at http://pics.livejournal.com/e_moon60/gallery/00008g2a?page=3.

It's worth looking at both pages because our owlflies look quite different from each other.
