Mayfly on a blade of grass in our backyard. Posted by Picasa



I always felt sad about mayflies. No feeding; and only 24 hours to find a mate and lay eggs. How unfair.

Nice shot. Did you see any in pre-moulting stage (but anyway they'll be under water)?

I guess you can say their life is very focused.

I was surprised to see it at all since we don't live very close to the water. I'll look next time we're near the local creek (about a mile away) to see what other stages I might find.
