Superb detail, Ed, a wonderful spot and capture. Yes, everywhere is dry and barren now, the ground is cracking up, and the wild flowers are disappearing. Carol

I just would have just had to try and move it to try and get a better background, but that's what I'm like Tongue

Good work Ed, they ain't the easiest of insects to capture.

Many thanks for the user award Bun, it is greatly appreciated. You usually find mayflys close to rivers and other watercourses in late spring and in the month of May as their name suggests
