This is a mayfly.  Mayflies are extremely old insects whose origins date back to approximately 300 million years ago.  Juvenile mayflies are aquatic but leave the water when they become adults.  They have just a day or two to mate before they run out of energy and die.  Here is a good site with more info on mayflies.

 

Here is this week’s question:  What happened to these strawberry blossoms?
