I bought my net from BioQuip.com. It is similar to their "model 7512DN, Aquatic Net, 2-Piece, D Shape, 150 Micron". They no longer sell the one that I use. Mine is triangular, has a one-piece handle. Other wise it is pretty much the same as model 7512DN. The new one is probably better because of the two-piece handle. It makes it much easier to carry in a vehicle. The 150 micron mesh size is important for small organisms. They also sell a 500 micron version. See: https://www.bioquip.com/Search/DispProduct.asp?pid=7512D (reply...)

Thanks. I barely noticed him as there are many Goldfinches around my place that I almost passed him off as one of them. He stayed for a moment on the Lilac tree as if he was going to eat a bud then flew off. (reply...)

Mardon, thank you for the pointer, I was unaware that vagans and tricaudatus are now the same insect, that's science working.
Barry, and apologies to you, the nymph does have three tails, I thought that was a shadow. I had been confused with the dun and the spinners, they have the two tails.
