I think both ladybug and lacewing exists as predators in this slide which are attacking Aphids as their prey.

Hi Rupinder, it looks like the aphids are feeding by ladybug beetles. The black ones are larvae and one with light orange color is the pupa.

I have seen the insects that i have circled, very closely on my fields, feeding on aphids. This is purely my observation. I don't know the insect's name.
