There was a light cloud of these hovering above my head on a walk along the Mohawk River this evening. The Mohawk is a very warm, slow moving river. Albany, NY area. Thanks.

What a pretty little creature...

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...
