Midge

Nematocera sps

Description:

Midges comprise many kinds of very small two-winged flies found world-wide. The term does not encapsulate a well-defined taxonomic group, but includes animals in several families of Nematoceran Diptera. While some midges are vectors for disease, many others play useful roles as prey items for insectivores, such as frogs. The habits of midges vary greatly among the component families.

Habitat:

It's a Midge of some kind. Maybe like or close to this one: http://bugguide.net/node/view/437618/bgp... (I don't think it can be IDed to species)
And by the way she is most likely a he due to the bushy antennas.
