Chrysoperla carnea, known as the common green lacewing, is an insect in the Chrysopidae family. It is found in many parts of America, Europe and Asia. Although the adults feed on nectar, pollen and aphid honeydew, the larvae are active predators and feed on aphids and other small insects. It has been used in the biological control of insect pests on crops.
Chrysoperla carnea was originally considered to be a single species with a holarctic distribution but it has now been shown to be a complex of many cryptic, sibling subspecies. These are indistinguishable from each other morphologically but can be recognised by variations in the vibrational songs the insects use to communicate with each other, which they especially do during courtship.

Ciao Luciano, bravo anche a scovarla che in mezzo al verde si mimetizzava bene, favolose le ali trasparenti, magnifico l'occhietto, bravissimo, ciao Silvio
The star shaped eye of a Lacewing is its most interesting feature and you have captured it well, Luciano.
Immaculate focus and wonderful details.

An impressive image of this fine looking Green Lacewing. The clarity and detail is amazing and the unique looking eye immediately captures your attention. Love the lime green color of its body and those wings are absolutely gorgeous.
Interesting insect in its green world.
The best dof and sharp details.
In a ws I show a similar one seen in my town.
Beautiful picture of this Lacewing. Nice colour and light. Details could have been better because I have seen this species here in TN which was taken using DSLR. But it's acceptable when you aren't using such gear.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice week,
