BrownLacewing

This is a poor photo taken in the corner between wall and ceiling of a dimly lit bathroom, but it clearly shows a Green lacewing becoming increasingly browned off with the weather. No longer a pure green, it is fading and turning brown, which is how it will see out the winter months before taking wing again next year.

So don't assume like I once did that those faded brown lacewings have died – they are perfectly fine and just hibernating. For a better picture of a fresh Green lacewing in close-up, check out my original blog post.
