Unknown Hitchhiker - Hexagenia

Unknown Hitchhiker - Hexagenia

Not sure what this guy was, but he (it) flew into my car and was watching me drive while sitting on my dashboard. Very docile and polite. Possibly injured from high winds. Mostly held his front legs in an upward position, as in the photo. When I got home, I put it on the bushes of my landscaping. Hope he will be okay.

Moved from Mayflies.
