Most mornings as I walk out to my garage I am greeted by a variety of visitors.  The large light on the garage attracts a cast of nighttime wanderers who decide to land on my garage doors.

Yes, it is May, and I am visited by mayflies.

I get a number of varieties depending on the time of year.  Sadly, I don't remember the types and classifications any more (I was better at recognizing them when I was actively fly fishing for trout).

Not be be left out, we also get an occasional caddisfly.  Both the mayflies and caddisflies live in the creek.

When I come home at night the visitors are gone.  Did they leave to mate?  Food for birds?  A small mystery to ponder.
