Found him (her) on a glass door going out to my deck. I couldn't resist the shot. The multiple reflections were an added bonus. I don't know what it is, I thought it might be a young preying mantis but my wife says no.

Looks like some species of Mayfly, not sure which though. How close are you to water?

I'm 40 miles from the nearest lake. I think it's too big to be a mayfly, aprox 2.5 to 3 inches.
