2nd and 3rd pic -- Looks almost like a bee and appears to behaving like a bee, but he was a lot smaller than my normal bees

2nd and 3rd images are of a bee. Likely a native bee -- many of them are smaller than honey bees.

Unable to ID the 1st image. (doubt it's lacewing anything.) Far too blurry. Please try again.

RE: more I.D. please

Thanks Jean.

Pretty bad pic -- i know. Pretty sad when I can't even focus on a clipped leaf and I can't even focus on something that's not even moving...LOL


RE: more I.D. please

You were probably too close to the object.

My camera shows a "focusing frame"
-- if green, the image will be fine - barring any user shakiness ;)
-- if red, move back a little bit.

RE: more I.D. please

Here is a like for lacewing pics. I was surprised to see some on the underside of my truck bumper.

Here is a link that might be useful: lacewing eggs
