Wonderful selection, Brian. The ants are especially superb, as is the digger wasp.

Thanks all for the comments, appreciated :)

HoT. Shek - The later instars of the lacewings I get do not seem to bother with the rubbish camouflage that the early instars use.
Not sure with the ants but the worker was obviously trying to make the winged ant go somewhere- I guess either back to the nest or it was trying to encourage it to greater heights for take off. Unfortunately it let go shortly after.

Thanks Linda :)
The larger lacewing larvae always remind me of crocodiles or similar
