I took a walk around the reservoir last week, and these were flying around everywhere. I think they are some type of Midge, possibly of the Chironomus species.
At first I was attracted to the way their wings shimmered with translucence in the sun, but when I started taking close-ups, I noticed these incredible feathery antennae.
It was very difficult to get a decent, sharp picture of the antennae with the wind blowing so hard that day, but I’m quite pleased with the results.
