Dewy owlfly

This early summer has been one of heavy morning dew. This owlfly (Ascaloptynx sp.) was almost completely covered with it. I could see him/her from 20 yards away glistening in the early sunlight. Dew does add an interesting facet to sleeping insects. See another image of the entire insect in the comments...
