I live fairly close to the Juniata river, as well as a few of its small tributaries, so I often see some mayflies sticking to my screen door. This one in particular was there as a dun when I was leaving the house, and then as a spinner when I got back! It was a fairly large mayfly, just wondering if someone has a name for it. I'd say it was about a size 12, or possibly a little larger.

Just realized my wife is in the background of the spinner picture... I think she was saying something along the lines of "why are you taking a picture of a bug?"
