    I guess you have to be a fly fisherman to appreciate bugs. This guy or gal? was sitting on the door of my car at 6:00 this am.

    epeorus or heptagenia spinner? Very light color.

    I have had baetis duns on my office window 8 floors up. Few things ruin productivity so easily...

    No clue what flavor. Nice looking mayfly got my day off to a great start.
    Wish I could figure out why my picture is up side down. I even rotated the the pic 2 or 3 times and it kept bring upside down so I gave up.

    Hi wanative-

    Based on its eyes, I believe it to be a male.

    I believe it to be a clinger of family Heptageniidae, two genera of which creekx suggested as possibilities.
