In hiding

By ColleenA
Found these two lacewings in the butterfly enclosure at Melbourne zoo having a quiet moment or two. The one was a bit camera shy with his head behind a leaf.

Beautifully caught - it's nice to see the differences between male and female (although there isn't a lot between these two!).
