|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Mayflies are insects which belong to the Order Ephemeroptera (from the Greek ephemeros = "short-lived", pteron = "wing", referring to the brief lifespan of adults). They have been placed into an ancient group of insects termed the Palaeoptera, which also contains dragonflies and damselflies. They are aquatic insects whose immature stage (called "naiad" or, colloquially, "nymph") usually lasts one year in freshwater. The adults are short-lived, from a few minutes to a few days depending on the species. About 2,500 species are known worldwide, including about 630 species in North America. Common names for mayflies include "dayfly", "shadfly", "Green Bay fly", "lake fly", "fishfly" (in the Great Lakes region of North America), and "Canadian soldier".|

great capture of this Mayfly with perfect focussing and a matching blurred background. I also like the splendid light and the wonderful colours. Congratulations!
Superb focus on the entire Mayfly, Marx.
This is an interesting creature we rarely see on TN now-a-days with low activity on this site. The shape of wings has been beautifully captured.
Thanks and regards.
