Ok I was going through some old photos and found these pics of a green drake collected on the main stem of the Delaware River lust below Hancock.I'm guessing it was just about ready to molt judging from its color but I figured I'd post it to see what you all thought. The blue color on the thorax is an artifact I believe. IThe brown drake was on the same leaf. Nice time to be there!

Wow, I agree with Jason. I don't think I've ever seen an image of a drake so dark. Excepting a few cells in the wings, it looks like a black & white photo... Mostly black.:)

The white balance on a camera can do funny things when you're shooting against a colored background like that green foam.

Jason...Or when, due to a "little gray" ;) in the beard, it completely washes out and I end up looking like Santa Claus...:)

Well except for the blue on the thorax, the color is right on. if you notice the brown drake is normal color.
