This would be too large to be a lace bug. It certainly is an interesting specimen. Nice spotting.

How large was this? It looks much like a Lace Bug, Tingidae, but it also appears larger than these typically are.

Looks like a Pelecinid Wasp, Pelecinus polyturator.

Superficially it resembles Doldina interjungens, but it would be a big leap to assume that this is the nymph of that species.

Interesting specimen. I initially assumed that it was a Thread-legged Bug (Emesinae), but all of these have grasping forelegs and only walk on the other four legs. I think this is still likely to be a Reduviid (Assassin Bug), but this is quite a puzzle.

I have indicated this to be a Short-tailed Hawk because many of the features in the photos match this species. However, this would be at the extreme northern reach of its range. You may want to talk with a local bird club about whether this is an accurate identification and whether there is precedent for this species in your area.

These are known by various names, including Moth Flies. They are also known as Drain Flies because they live off of bacteria or algae in drains.

That white, teardrop shape around the eye is distinctive for a female Wood Duck.

This could be Tragopogon pratensis, also known as Meadow Salsify or Yellow Goatsbeard.
