Our property is in West Virginia- growing zone 6. A few weeks ago, I was in our out "porch", when I noticed an insect. It appearred to be a mosquito hawk, but it's body was extemely thin- the wings were too thin also. Lots of wings and legs. It seemed to be trying to escape from a spider's web- but there was none. It was just flitting up and down, and back and forth. Every so often it would stop, and then it folded up and looked like a tiny bit of debris. I could not get a picture, as you might imagine.
