Closeup insects by Troutnut from Enfield Creek in New York

Female Procloeon (Tiny Sulphur Duns) Mayfly Dun
This dun of a fairly large Baetidae species was one of only a couple I saw all evening.
Female Perlesta (Golden Stones) Stonefly Adult
This stonefly species was the most common insect over the small stream I fished one August afternoon; I saw dozens in their egg-laying flights.
