Antlion - Myrmeleon formicarius ( Neuropatera ) - its general name is lacewing - but it's very general, refers also to Chrysopa sp. ( golden-eye fly ) and scorpion flies. Larva of antlion lives in sands, making holes in it - insects, like ants falls to those holes and can't get out ( due to dry, loose sand ) nad falls to the bottom where jaws of antlion are ready to kill the prey... nice, isn't it? :D There was nice sci-fi movie in which there were giant beasts hunting that way...

Whoa! Nice catch man. I was looking for this thingy but was unsuccessful, I've seen ants being trapped in their sand bait, it's so cool :P

@ Spaceguy1 - nice pics, but there is something wrong with framing. On the first one the bee is in the middle... on the soceond one... well, there too much free space to the up and right.
