Green Lacewing
This beautiful insect landed right in front of me whilst I was pursuing peacock caterpillars through a patch of stinging nettles. I tried researching it, but drew a blank as its eye colour and wing pattern didn't seem to quite fit the species listed.

Gorgeous picture! It looks a little like what here we call an "ant lion."

Many thanks. Not the same thing as an ant lion (these are family Chrysopidae) although no less voracious as both larva and winged adult.
