Closeup insects by Troutnut from the Namekagon River in Wisconsin

Female Strophopteryx fasciata (Mottled Willowfly) Stonefly AdultFemale Strophopteryx fasciata (Mottled Willowfly) Stonefly Adult View 4 PicturesSeveral stoneflies of this species were the first adult insects I found in 2004 when I started this site. The hatch was sparse but lasted a good part of the day, and I noted a few good rises despite the early season cold. They ended up struggling on the water's surface fairly often.

Male Strophopteryx fasciata (Mottled Willowfly) Stonefly AdultMale Strophopteryx fasciata (Mottled Willowfly) Stonefly Adult View 2 PicturesThis male died overnight before I had the chance to photograph him, so his abdomen is shorter than it should be because it shriveled a bit.
