|With my new Nikon D7000 and Tokina 100 mm lens, taken in late afternoon on the university campus. I could not reduce the shutter speed because of breeze. I think it is a lacewing, but a secure ID would be welcome. |

Your insect belongs to the order Neuroptera, which includes the lacewings, but this one is an adult/imago Antlion of the family Myrmeleontidae. I cannot identify it to species level as I do not have the relevant experience or references for Turkish insects, but this may help steer you in the right direction. The backlighting is very nicely handled in this image, and the choice of a small aperture has kept the while insect within the depth of field - nicely done.
Best wishes, Nigel.
Nice insect taken in a wonderful light. regards
