Came across an assortment of bugs at the Franklin, PA McDonald's Saturday morning, right where French Creek and the Allegheny meet. Felt a little weird taking photos of the flies lol
I'm getting a little better at this but still not an expert entomologist.

Here it goes...

Not sure about this one. I originally thought hex but I don't think that's right. They had two tails, this one just happened to be missing one.

White mayfly. But isn't it early for them? There's a stream south of here that has a fantastic hatch......but it occurs during late July/early August.

Not the best picture but I think this is some type of sulphur..

Not sure about these. Some type of hex, or yellow drake?

And then I found this. The biggest of the bunch

The top one is an iso (slate drake). I can't make out enough detail to even hazard a guess on the the rest. (Although the bottom might be an iso spinner.)

The 2nd one is not a white fly; they have only stubs for legs.

Iso, some type of steno and possibly a yellow or golden drake. Just a guess.

Top and bottom are Iso's, the rest appear to be cahills of various species.

Good stuff. Thanks guys..

For some reason I didn't even think of iso's. After further research that's exactly what the top and bottom ones are.

Tough to tell for sure, but agree with Chaz. Top and bottom are slate drakes and all the middle ones are various cahills.
