Monomad: Lacewing eggs were hanging above the surface

in Black And White3 months ago

Here are some macro shots I submitted for the current round of the #monomad challenge.

These are not balloons that are filled with helium, tied with sewing thread, and then left floating in the air. Some people may think that these are a bunch of mushrooms that grew on a small twig. But these are lacewing eggs—a kind of net-winged insect—that have not hatched. This could have escaped our eyesight because the eggs are very small and smooth, but except for those of you who love to observe macro subjects, you will definitely not miss it. Normally, a female lacewing places her eggs on leaves or twigs, and they are hanging above the surface. Yes, like seeing balloons filled with helium...








All of the images here are my own work, taken with a Xiaomi POCO NFC smartphone and an assembled external macro lens.


You resolved a question I had. I thought they might be a kind of fungus.

Amazing photography. What is the name of this beautiful plant which is in photos.
