”Adult antlion”

In the woods after the rainy season. A lacewings fluttered among the trees with its wings shining. The larva is known as the antlion. It creates a mortar-shaped nest on the sand and waits for the small insects to fall in it. It grows by feeding those insects. Around the end of the rainy season, the antlion who has accumulated enough power, transforms into the lacewing with beautiful transparent wings.  [JULY 2021]
