    "the girl with kaleidoscope eyes..."

    I think the eyes on this insect (praying mantis?) are incredible!! I've seen the different colors and patterns of dragonfly/damselfly/butterfly eyes, but never anything with this many colors or this pattern!

    UPDATE: The great folks at whatsthatbug.com have ID'd my mystery bug as a mantispid, or mantidfly. They aren't closely related to either dragonflies or mantids, but instead are related to lace wings!
