Caption

Lacewing eggs hatching. Larvae hatching from a cluster of eggs, laid by a lacewing (order Neuroptera), attached to a twig. Lacewings lay their eggs on the tips of long silken stalks to disguise them and possibly to prevent the first larvae that hatch from eating the other eggs. The eggs have a fungus-like appearance and were once even classed as fungi, with the scientific name Ascophora ovalis. There are about 2000 species of this predatory insect.
