Mayfly (order Ephemeroptera) sp. unknown
July 23, 2014 - Our first Mayfly species and what a doozie!
We thought we had two insects mating right on top of each other on the wall near our backdoor in Northglenn Colorado. Even as we moved in for a closer look the two were moving apart from one another. By the time we returned with camera in hand
the 'two' had become one Mayfly and one exoskeleton. This mayfly had been molting right in front of us!
What we would have given for our camera in hand set in video mode. Still ... high times for insect geeks in Northglenn at the Dixon's!
