Hello bugman! I saw this little beauty on the side of my brothers house. I’ve never seen anything like it! Can you tell me what it is?

This is the cast off exoskeleton or exuvia of a Mayfly, an insect that because its nymph is aquatic is generally found near water.  We just finished posting an image of an adult Mayfly.
