Attack of the Aphid Lions

Published by at 6:32 am under Insects, Fish, Frogs,Schenley Park

Since I wrote about red aphids I’ve been back to Schenley Park looking for their predators.

I knew I might find aphid lions (lacewing larvae) but I didn’t notice them on the plants until I saw this amazing video.  That’s because aphid lions wear disguises!

Watch the video and see why they’re incognito.

So much goes on in the tiny world of insects that we never notice.
