Catch and release

I went inside to wash my hands

and a sweet fairy bug was waiting for me.
She flew up to the lotion and I carried her outside.
I don't have fairy bug food inside.
I ordered another field guide.

I think she is a May Fly although it is still April.

What a beautiful insect. I have never seen one like it before.

Hi Naturegirl,
The Mayflies are pretty!
I hope you are enjoying your grandchildren and all the beauty of Arizona.

Dear Chris,
I do like bugs. I do not want them in the house but I cannot kill them. Thus we take them outside.
So many of them are good garden helpers too.

Beautiful post as always Q. We also have a catch & release "policy" in our home. What a lovely insect you found ~ wings like glass.
