These guy's I believe might be.

ephemera varia for the first one.

2, it hard to tell I don't see tails.
my guess it might be...???? e needhami


I was poking around looking. But with the wings
ruffed up and no tails. There are many small
guys in that size and look. For now They call them
little a Blue Winged Olive---BWO-- short
Other than I still stand on the Needhami.

Then a gain lots has changed but it could be
what was. Pseudocloeon, carolina or still is that all
I got in mind. Looking at your guy again I think
i can see hind wing ???? But your has lighter legs
so more than likely E needhami.


We will wait for the pro's here

I'll bet Rogers got it good here.

Mack.

I agree. The eyes look to be turbinate on the latter, which would preclude the ephemerellids. As to the former, definitely Ephemera. As to species, I'd be interested in Gonzo's take as there are several similar ones in that region.

Looks like E. varia to me.
