Stonefly

This weekend I went camping with my family in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, near Berryville. I poked around with river cobbles and experienced fluvial dynamics firsthand with an inner tube ride down the Shenandoah River, but mainly I turned off the geology part of my brain. Instead, the brain enjoyed idling, and thinking about how to throw a frisbee, and listening to bluegrass music, and eating.

The only photos I took were of this lovely stonefly adult (Plecoptera) that landed on my car.
