Looks like a first for PN, but then my search many times doesn't even show my own 😊 Anyway, great spotting Brian. Thanks for sharing.

Nice spotting Brian :) Reminds me of the swarms of mating (Lycus sanguineus) net winged beetles I saw in Carlsbad caverns in New Mexico.Unfortunately I couldn't capture some pics for PN.
