We had a welcome visitor on our door.  I love mayflies — please read this blog post.  This one was tired enough to let me take a lot of photographs.  Take a look at this photo, and let me know if you notice anything missing:

Did you notice that there are no mouthparts?  Many species of mayflies do not eat in the adult stage, and so don’t need mouthparts.  They have one order of business: reproducing.  That’s why their (adult) lifespans are proverbially short — the order is called Ephemeroptera for a reason.

Good luck, buddy!
