Caption: Lacewing. High-speed photograph of a green or common lacewing (Chrysopa septempunctata) in flight. In the foreground are a pair of insect wings. Lacewings are flying insects which are commonly found in houses, as they are attracted by lights. The large compound eyes (brown) on the head of the lacewing give it a wide field of vision, which helps in finding prey and avoiding predators. The antennae (above the eyes) also have a sensory function. Lacewings are distinguished by their delicate, net-veined wings. They are most active at twilight, and prey largely on aphids, which they kill with their powerful jaws.
