On one of the discolored evergreen sumacs, Rhus virens, that you saw yesterday, I was lucky to get a picture of a lacewing that stayed put only briefly. The combination of vivid light green and duller dark red is an uncommon yet pleasant one, don’t you think?

As with the last few pictures, the date was January 23 and the location was a bluff above Loop 360 near Bluffstone Dr. in northwest Austin.
