Dragonfly?

Early Wednesday morning I found this little creature staring at me through the dining room window. My guess is that it is a recently emerged dragonfly. The body is about an inch long and the tail at least 2 inches. It was still clinging to the window in the breeze in the afternoon.

How interesting! I have never seen anything like this. Doesn't it have the wrong wing formation to be a dragonfly?

Looks like a fishfly, also called a Mayfly, to me.

If it is, when they emerge from their larval form, they have only 24 hours to find a mate and lay their eggs before they die. In adult form, they don't even have mouths. When I lived around Gimli, MB, which is on Lake Winnipeg, this would happen over a very short time period. There'd be millions of them. Buildings and cars would be fuzzy with them, and every step would crunch. And the smell! It's why they're called "fish" fly.
