Dark Fishfly - Nigronia fasciata Spotted in a deciduous forest - it was walking along on the trail.  There was a fast-moving river nearby. It looked perfectly intact, so maybe it had recently emerged...or else, it just felt like going for a walk ;) Geotagged,N. fasciatus,Nigronia,Spring,United States,dark fishfly,fishfly Click/tap to enlarge Promoted
