Green Bug

Posted by
Lee (Fort Frances Ontario, Canada) on 19 July 2009 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

I noticed these little green bugs the other day. Amazing how lately I've discovered and seen so many things that I have not ever seen before. I can't seem to have enough time to see it all. There is always something else.
I do not know the name of these bugs. They have clear delicate wings with a cyan colour in the ribbing. Their wing beat is fairly slow. They seem to like the tall grasses.

Thank you for visiting my site. I consider myself to be lucky living where I do. Everyday I wake up to a wealth of interesting visual scenarios. Most of my pictures are Wildlife and Nature taken from around the area. The area specifically being Fort Frances Ontario on beautiful Rainy Lake. Feel free to comment on what you see. I look forward to hearing from you. If you like what you see, please rate it. Better yet, bookmark the site and drop back often. I will be posting daily.

Hi Lee I think this is a Chrysoperla carnea.
It looks like the one I photographed recently in our garden.
