    Diane…I think you have a Mayfly there…do a Google search for images… 🙂

    Showed up a few days early? 😉

    Great shot, Diane. The shadows are playing tricks with my eyes.

    Yes…it is a great shot…the kind you’d see in a fancy insect identification book…so clear and detailed. 🙂

    It’s a Mayfly, and they do not bite or sting. In fact, once they get their wings, like this one, they don’t eat anything… they mate and die. What a way to go, huh?
