Nashville, Davidson County, Tennessee, USA May 21, 2009 Size: 14 mm
This fellow is so ephemerally thin and small that I barely noticed him. Just as I did resolve him, he snatched the small gnat I hadn't noticed at all! For some reason, the full body shots will not post without extreme jaggies no matter what I try, so I hope the closeup of the beautiful head will help.
