Amazing. It makes me wonder how the insect can even fly with that big egg sack.

This is always a great hatch, but tough to catch the pupae before becoming an adult. The pupae hit the surface and pop immediately. It is also damn tough to capture these energetic little guys and not mash their wings. :-)

I won't venture a guess on the genus since I need a good macro shot of the wings, etc.
