I’m very interested on what type of bug this is. I have never run across one like this… Photo was taken 5/5/14 around 9 am. I’m not sure if it native to the area or possibly an invasive species.

Hi Douglas,
This is a Giant Stonefly or Salmonfly in the genus
Pteronarcys, and it is a native species.
