Wildlife Wednesday - another mystery bug

I like bugs...but as for knowing what they are, I have no idea. This bug I found when I was fishing on the river with my Dad. I've no idea what he is but he's interesting. He would have been about 2 cm long - so pretty small - and his orange head was quite bright. The wings looked like the finest tissue paper. For something so tiny, they are remarkably put together. So much detail, so many tiny articulated joints, such beauty.

Do you know what my bug is?


  1. No idea! Where's an entomologist when a girl needs one?

    1. I know, you'd think there'd be entomologists lining up to ID my crappy photos, wouldn't you? :)
