I've posted this photo a few times before.  Possibly here on this forum.  I can't remember.  Even so this is a better, more recent photo edit. So it's worth posting again.

I'm running out of good bug pics.  I need to make some more.  I got a new triangular stream/bug net yesterday but I'm swamped right now. Trying to get ready for a 6 day road trip.

And then a matching male (smaller, more yellow than olive with bulging ochre colored eyes). It's interesting to note this one has no tails.  This turns out to be common.  My guess is they sometimes break off in the eclosion process. I have an ultra-closeup of a male BWO with no tails too.

Here's an April Skwala from a few years ago.  It's a focus stack but I screwed up and didn't get all of it in focus.

They're the same size and shape as a small Golden Stonefly, but mostly black.
