What in the world is this? Tiny walking trash pile and it's alive!


Mystery now solved! I've never seen anything like it before! It looks like a little tiny fuzz ball with baby bugs and trash on its back! Yikes! It was crawling around on my patio furniture this afternoon. Thanks to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for figuring it out! Click on the photos to see what is underneath!
Are those baby bugs on its back? Or little dead bugs?
Yikes! You can see wings sticking out through the trash pile.
Here is the little guy next to a kernel of dried corn for a size comparison.
Here's what under all of that trash, it seems...a brown lacewing! Who knew?
