Id Please - Orthonevra nitida

Id Please - Orthonevra nitida
Grafton, Lorain County, Ohio, USA

Could someone id this please? I never saw a head like this one. Picture quality isn't great, but I only got one.


Moved from Orthonevra.

Those eyes tell all -
Orthonevra, in the guide here. You probably should crop the image. Only you and a handful of editors can see the image at the full 933 pixel width you posted. Everyone else sees maximum 560. Cropping to 560 or so will make the insect larger when viewed at 560 or as thumbnail.

Thank you
I had already cropped this down so that I was afraid to crop more. It started out as several daisies. Some of the pictures in the guide are also shown on daisies. Right now there is a full field next door to me. I will be checking for more Orthonevra. Lovely creature. Thanks again.
