Saw this nice looking bug at a gas station in Kenmore; seemed out of place in the City.
ID?? Golden colored Drake?
Body was 1"+ in length.

I think it's a Hexagenia, a.k.a "hex". Was there a lake or some very slowly moving water nearby?

Hi steeli-

As tkww says, I believe it to be a Hexagenia limbata female imago.

Sammamish River and Swamp Creek would be nearby; of course Lake Wa.
Never thought such a big bug could live there; it was on that particular cool rainy day last Friday so would make sense...
