    I have no idea, but that curved brown line on it’s head (mouth like) and black antenna with the dot (eye and lash like) makes it look like a happy little bug all prettied up for the day.

    It reminds me of a just-emerged dragonfly we watched. Its swollen body shrank, its wings emerged – it was nothing I’d ever imagined!
