    Daniel Heald says

    no problem - wing venation is a very important diagnostic feature with many insect groups - some of the lacewing experts here could probably tell you which genus it's from.

    Wow, thank you Daniel Heald, I didn't think anyone could id this wing! The photo doesn't show how beautiful it was, so bronzy-shiny in the morning sun.
