most of us have a thing for either identifying or discovering bugs. Found this guy near Auburn Al on Lake Martin. i know its some sort of mayfly but i have never seen one with this type of tail. it seemed to fly and move around well with it.

Either a recently emerged subimago, male ephemerella litobrancha that still has some skin from emerging stuck to its tail.
