Green Lacewing Larva

Perhaps one of the most bizarre bugs I’ve seen on our adventures, is this Green Lacewing Larva. At first site it looks like a piece of debris sliding along. Inanimate. Once you get up close, you realize this thing is well enough alive as it hunts along leaves for aphids while carrying a load of “junk”. Even the corpses of their victims are piled on as camouflage… or trophies?
