I found this bug on the beach in Cavendish PEI April02, 2016. I was set to photograph a small barnacle nearby when I saw a small black(ish) insect.
The temperature was about 8-10c and it was just starting to rain
We believe this is a Midge in the family Chironomidae, a group of non-biting relatives of Mosquitoes. The feathered antennae indicates this is a male.
