American Pelecinid, and other North Fork highlights!

Just one of the interesting sights of a long weekend on Long Island's North Fork. If you ever see her or one like her, don't worry, she's harmless (unless you're a grub)!

Other highlights - the Bug Lighthouse (sorry, no pix!), a Shelter Island circumnavigation, breakfast at that notorious Harley hangout, Bruce's Cheese Emporium just enough time playing in the standing waves at Orient Point to make me reallyreallyreally want to go back for a longer session. And farm stands. I have to congratulate the farm stand operators of the North Fork on their perfection of reverse-ATM force field technology - it is amazing the way the money magically flies from urban pockets when confronted with all that lucious produce!

Oh, and great company. Photo trip report in process - this is but a teaser!

how big is that bug? Is that a stick of butter underneath?

Looking forward to the full report, sorry to have missed the trip.

She's sort of hornet-sized except for that elongated tail, which is very long - maybe an inch & a half when she uncurls it.

That's a paper towel with some bread crumbs on it.
