Interesting bug in the azalea plant - Leptophlebia

Interesting bug in the azalea plant - Leptophlebia
Americus, Sumter County, Georgia, USA
February 28, 2016
I saw something fly by and land on the azalea. This very shy insect was what I saw. Sorry it is a little blurry, but, it was dark under the leaves where it was hiding. What is it?

Leptophlebia
Hi americusgardeninn-

I believe this female subimago to be of genus Leptophlebia.

 
thank you
I truly appreciate your identification. If it is a mayfly, does that mean summer is here? :)

 
Welcome
You are certainly welcome. If it is a mayfly, does that mean summer is here? No. :-)

 
someday I will learn to read
you already said it was a subimago so I didn't need to ask (face palm)
