OwlFly Eyes

owl_fly_eyes_Ululodes.JPG-5742Check out these eyes on this insect. It is an Owlfly (Ululodes species) most likely quadripunctatus. These insects are related to Antlions and  Lacewings, They somewhat resemble dragonflies but have clubbed antennae and fold their wings over their backs. Like Dragonflies and Antlions these insects are predatory both as larva and adults. The adults will come to lights at night but are said most often fly at dusk and dawn. This particular individual wasn’t in the best shape but I got this interesting shot of its eyes.
