  1. Hi, the insect which you named it "Antlion(?)", I think it is called Lacewing,that is what I've read from my encyclopedia.

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. It looks like a lacewing but should be an antlion. I have photographed a few lacewings before.

  4. Wow Kurt I am amazed with the beautiful array of creatures you have discovered on your recent trip all so beautifully photographed. Just brilliant and need to be seen by many more people!

  5. Thanks Mel. It's a great place for nature lovers:).
