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!

Wink Re: Mysterious bug

[/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. Actually it's the breeding queen of the Albino Brain Chiggars that has wiped out planets when they invade! ( 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.

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

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.
