    It looks like a wood wasp or a mosquito hawk.

    It is a mayfly or Ephemeroptera. Very dangerous, one bit will kill you slowly in agonizing pain.

    Agree, probably a Mayfly. Only the females have a dangerous bite. Very nasty.

    I'm from Ohio, which borders Lake Erie. I'm embarrassed to say Mayflies have their own website...

    MayflieNews. It includes a video and a gift shop...

    I was shocked to see the first replies. Either people messing with the OP or ones that had no clue. I thought they were found all over. Maybe just in the mid west?

    Anyone can see it has eight legs, duh. Hence, spider.

    Possible a Recluse Brown spider. If so- the bite of one is quit nasty.

    It's a little hard to tell in your photo, so here are a few more to compare to along with a good website link. The Brown Recluse isn't usually found out in the open like this. I'm very tolerant of spiders, but I still kill the ones I'm suspicious of. Bites from spiders that are toxic to humans are nasty.
