Mayfly
Order: Ephemeroptera

We see Mayflies in June during Science Camp, the kids enjoy catching them. This one must be a female, judging by the size of the abdomen. After mating, the females lay their eggs in lakes and streams, they live only one day as an adult. The mayfly nymphs live in the water for up to a year. The following summer they emerge, mate, lay eggs and then die.
