    Yesterday I was sitting on the porch and saw this flying around the flowers. At first I thought it was a humming bird but it wasn't acting like one. It is about 2 inches long. Has a light brown body with 2 long what I think are feelers on its head and a darker brown tail that looks like a crawfish's. The wings looked like they could lay back against the body like an insects would. My camera has a short delay between when I press the shutter and the picture takes so it was hard to get a picture of it. I circled it so hopefully it will be easier to see. More curious than anything else.
