Day 212: The 30 days life of an adult Antlion. (212/366)

This is an Antlion, thanks to Mary Keim for the id, at first I thought it was a fishfly. This nice guy really do not belong in the macro/micro world, he measure more than an inch. But took a picture, because they last only for 30 days on this adult stage. They do not bite or attack, really harmless just similar to the butterflies. My Macro/Micro World
