Mr. Dangles

There’s a dead green bug hanging in the middle of my living room, at the end of single cobweb string that doesn’t seem to connect to any larger web that I can spot. It had to be documented, I understood, but the slightest breeze makes it flitter about and spin, so it’s hard to photograph.

These are my three best attempts.

I like the way his li’l dead antennae stand straight up.  I’ll continue so long as Mr. Dangles remains a-dangling.

While we’re on the subject, what kind of bug is he?

    My guess it's a lacewing. Long antennae rule out damselflies and dragonflies. And the two sets of wings rule out crane flies.
