Great shots! The one you say is not a lacewing actually looks gilded.

Every night, before I go to bed, I turn on the outside lights and look out into the backyard and the woods.

Every time I do this I half expect to see Bigfoot standing in the woods.

But I really hope I don't, because there would only be a glass door between him and me.

I have done this three thousand, six hundred and fifty times.

I have never seen anything.

But I will continue looking.

Wow, sounds like your on your way to possibly discovering a new species!
That yellow tinged bug looks like an albino mosquito.
Thanks for the pics

Even more pictures, took quite a few but here are the best of the night.


A Mayfly carrying an egg sac! At first I didn't know what the heck it was so I looked it up online.



Here's a REALLY handsome-looking moth. Not sure on the species.



And a bonus, the moon and Venus. Had to zoom in all the way for this.

Very unusual to get that Mayfly with eggs!

Your idea of lights on for bugs has turned up some good sightings...
