I finally got fed up with not being able to find a template that does just what I want – simplicity (with a grey background!).
The green lacewings are quite difficult to tell apart. Fortunately, Chrysoperla carnea still in its subdued winter colours is reasonably easy to spot (much harder later in the year when it’s green like all the others), especially if you get close enough to see the hairy veins on the wings.

The Western Yellow Centipede is an interesting beastie, the UK’s longest at up to 70mm.
