    Luckily, on the outside of the window. Don't know who it is, but he was kind enough to sit almost still for about 5min, so I was able to use FD 50/3.5 macro. Wasn't very convenient as the closest point where I could stand was about 3ft from it. Also, I didn't notice the Canon FD adapter was in "unlock" position, which means I shot wide open :)

    Looks like a Lace Wing. They're beneficial in that their larve eat Aphids.
