Caddisfly. They have the same general appearance as some moths, but belong to a different order, Trichoptera. See http://bugguide.net/node/view/5233/bgimage. The mouthparts are distinctly different -- rudimentary chewing parts instead of a proboscis. Most of the larvae live underwater in cases assembled from debris. Some of them don't make cases, but spin nets; a few are free-living.

Nice picture -- good separation of subject from background. Was there motion to deal with, or did you run 1/800 at f/5 to get a nice background blur?

Thanks Rik. Very Happy
You are right about mouthparts. I can see it now, especially on big image.
The place where subject was captured was marshy.
And yes, it was pretty windy as I can remember.
