Take me to your trash can

Every day's a new adventure. This morning, James found an odd critter crawling across our dining room floor. "Oh, that's a lacewing larva," I said. Then I had to get my camera and take a few shots. A video, too. These guys stick "trash" on their back probably to deter predators. You can just barely see the larva's mandibles on the photo above. Also, I'm pretty sure that's a spider leg protruding from the larva's left side on the photo below. One of nature's true recyclers!

I've posted before about these trashy guys: "Nature's comedian" and "More weirdness."
