I believe I saw the same insect referenced while at the Steeler game last night. Couldn't get a great look at it, but it was definately orange. It sounds much like what's been described.

Buck, was it a mayfly?...no one ever said it was a kind of mayfly...which made me wonder if it was a crane fly.

Tom,
It was a mayfly, I've seen crane flies before and it wasn't one.

Buck,
Saw the same bug on Tues. @ the Pirates/Mets game. landed on the seat in front of me. Same description, but with an orange egg sac. reminded me of a sulper, but at this time of year and on the three rivers?


We used to get huge mayfly accumulations on the sides of the buildings when I worked on the north side of Pittsburgh. Those rivers actually throw off a ton of bugs.

Ok, Buck never said it was a mayfly so I thought I'd ask...
