Mysterious bug
Found this bug in the picture below what is it?

I'll have a few more pictures of a different bug here in a couple of hours

Re: Mysterious bug
The photo is so dark and out of focus I couldn't see the bug you were referring to, sorry.

Or on second thought, you might have gotten that elusive photo of BIGFOOT everyone in the NW has been after! LOL!

[/COLOR]Oh--I recognize that in a minute! It's the rare, white, glowy, and blurry bug found in a lot of great fly fishing places but rarely identifed. :surprise: Actually it's the breeding queen of the Albino Brain Chiggars that has wiped out planets when they invade! :shocking: ( 3rd Rock from the Sun)

Drlaser: We were just having a little fun, didn't mean to hurt your feelings or insult you in anyway, but from the photo you posted we can't see the bug you are referring to. Please post a better picture and I'm sure someone here will be able to help.

Re: Mysterious bug
With the iphone camera, take the shot from a little further back, then just rely on the resolution to get you a close-up (had to use the trick when photographing flies).

Did you say you will be posting photos of a bug of the same species later? Unfortunately, I don't know my insects so well :(

Re: Mysterious bug
Its okay guys I posted that right after I found out I made an 80 on my chemistry exam which normally is a good thing but i studied 18 hours for it so I might have been just a little cross. I didn't get a chance to go back and catch another bug plus we had a major storm roll in just now so my bug collecting excursions are postponed. I have pictures of Texas Mayfly's for you though.
