    Very small Lacewing type flies that tend to come out later in the evening. This little guy was about 3mm in length. First shot was taken with the Sigma 105 and a 12mm Ext. Tube. The second shot was taken with the 105 and a 36mm ext. tube.

    The fluffy white stuff you see all over it is a wax that they produce themselves.

    Well spotted, nicely focused. I like the contrast between the green and white, really makes the bug stand out. (y)
