Today I noticed the Mayflies fluttering through the air, so I went down to the river
to check on the water's surface.
Sure enough, there was a hatch going on.
May's Mayflies provide plenty of fascinating flotsam when they hatch.
These streamlined nymphs live in the stream's substrate until a miracle happens.
Those rock clinging, aquatic creatures rise to the surface, shed their larval exuviae, break free from the water,
They often rise from the water and fly steeply for the sky before heading off toward the trees.
