I don't know if you get these in the states,
but thought it might make an interesting pattern.
I had one land on my knee last year & was amazed by

This was on the side window of my van, here in central Florida, last weekend, Sept. 23rd. I don't know what it is, some sort of may fly ... I think I saw this referred to as a " Hexagenia limbata".
