Man oh man, strange looking critters are probably a result of our cool wet spring.

Almost 2 inches long.

Kinda looks like a dragon fly 'empty jacket'. Not sure what the technical word for it is??? They live in water then crawl out of the water, break out of their 'jacket, then fly away.

Gosh you folks are clever. :D

Yup, a small pond is nearby.

Thanks!!!
